Farewell to Sophie!

March 29th, 2013

Sophie finishes work today, to go forward to a new job as a Plant Molecular Biologist/Virologist at the Natural Resources Institute, UK, as a team leader on insect-vectored viruses of tropical root crops, especially cassava.  Congratulations, and bon voyage!

Sophie was with us for more than 6 years.  She conducted a three-year postdoc on the sterol nutrition of aphids, with funding from USDA, and a graduate studentship on luteoviruses in aphids, in collaboration with the Central Science Laboratory, York, UK.
