Kimberley Evans, Káradóttir lab, is the winner of the Lab Heroes Award 2017. She was acknowledged for her hard work and dedication in her role as Lab Manager at the CSCI. Kimberley will receive $2000 Hello Bio vouchers, plus a $1000 travel grant.

Commenting on the nomination, Dr Thóra Káradóttir said:

“I nominate Kimberley (Kim) for a lab hero as she is there for everyone in the lab. She helps people out with their experiments, putting others before herself. Particularly helpful for students both as a teacher for experimental research but also for psychological support -often needed. She really goes over and above expectations to help lab members get their papers published. She heroically stays into late hours to get things done for submission of papers and grants. Similarly, with thesis submission she also stays on to help with printing, reading over chapters for spell checking and providing comfort to reduce the stress levels often associated with thesis submission. In addition to all this, she is an exceptional researcher in her own right - an excellent example that one can be excellent in research as well take time to help others. A better team member is hard to find. She really pushes forward the success of her lab colleagues without seeking the fame for it."

Thank you, Kimberley for all your hard work and many congratulations!
