Biochemist's work noted

University of Otago biochemist Prof Catherine Day attended a function at Parliament, in Wellington, last night to celebrate the Marsden Fund's 20th anniversary, where she was one of about a dozen academics whose research was highlighted.

The fund supports curiosity-driven research worth about $60 million a year.

Otago vice-chancellor Prof Harlene Hayne, a former member of the Marsden Fund Council, was invited but could not attend.

Well done that biochemist!

"University of Otago biochemist Prof Catherine Day ... was one of about a dozen academics whose research was highlighted."  It's heartening to read about the inspiring people at Otago University.  Sad though that research excellence warrants such low priority in news and in the university's spending.
