Mrs Sheena Lamond, a longstanding member of staff and part of the James Hutton Institute’s Cell and Molecular Sciences group in Dundee, has been recognised in the 2017 New Year Honours list.

Mrs Lamond has been honoured with a British Empire Medal for services to agricultural science. She has been a member of staff for more than 45 years and currently manages the Media Kitchen at the Invergowrie site, which services the facilities with laboratory consumables such as growth media and sterile equipment. She has also assisted with invertebrate research and managed insect culture facilities.

Mrs Lamond said: “I am absolutely thrilled to receive a BEM in the New Year Honours.

“During my time at the James Hutton Institute and its predecessors I’ve seen Scottish agricultural science bloom – it now punches well above its weight both at home and abroad.

“This honour wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment and support of my many colleagues at James Hutton Institute and its forebears.”

Professor Colin Campbell, the Institute’s Chief Executive, commented: “For the last 45 years Sheena has supported the excellent agricultural science done in Invergowrie. Her loyalty and devotion have helped the Institute and its predecessors make substantial contributions to food security.

“I am delighted that Sheena has been recognised for her efforts.”
