12 November 2021
Wolfson Bioimaging Facility support team member Judith Mantell is to receive the Royal Microscopical Society Vice Presidents’ Award for Microscopy Research and Laboratory Support, which aims to recognise ‘unsung heroes’ of microscopy.
Judith is a well-known and respected figure in the UK electron microscopy community. This award recognises the excellent support Judith has provided to users of the Facility since the EM unit was formed in 2007 and her wider promotion of EM techniques, including previous roles with equipment suppliers and contributions to RMS courses and Cryo Microscopy Group.
RMS Vice President Dr Peter O’Toole said: “Judith is quite evidently a major asset to her facility and all those that she has helped and taught both internally and external to Bristol.”
Fellow RMS Vice President Prof Susan Anderson added: "Her expertise has not only elevated the quality of research being carried out, but also continues to earn the respect of colleagues across the EM community. We are delighted to be able to take this opportunity to acknowledge these often unseen efforts.”
