Suzi Gage wins prestigous Convocation Award
7 December 2012
Convocation annually presents awards to up to four students who have made an outstanding contribution to University life. This year, TARG's Suzi Gage is one of the winners!
Suzi was nominated for the award by Marcus Munafo, who said "Science needs more people like Suzi. We cannot think of anyone who better deserves recognition for her creative efforts, her scientific and personal integrity and her continuing efforts to attract young people into science."
Suzi was presented with her award by the Chancellor of the University, the Rt Hon The Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE. It was the 15th Annual Convocation Awards Ceremony.
Jan Noyes, the head of the School of Experimental Psychology said "The competition is fierce and it is to Suzi's credit that her exceptional talents have been recognised"
Everyone at TARG would like to say a massive congratulations to Suzi for her achievement. While we're at it, we'd also like to bring your attention to some of Suzi's other fantastic achievements. Only this morning, Suzi wrote a blog for the Guardian on a new initiative to 'confront the sloppiness that pervades science', to go alongside her previous blog for the Guardian about scientific fraud. At the end of November, Suzi won the UK Science Blog Prize for her blog 'Sifting the Evidence'. Suzi won the 'I'm a scientist, Get me out of here!' competition in July 2011 and to top it all off, Suzi made sporting history when she became one of the first people to race in the new Olympic Stadium.
