markhutchinson  20 October 2014: FIGJAM award

Professor Hutchinson was awarded the coveted University of Adelaide “Fig Jam Award” from first year science coordinator Dr Velta Vingelis for a recent lecture to undergraduate students.  In the words of Dr Vingelis:  I also know for a fact that kids were all amazed and that many will be emailing you, stalking you, in general harrassing you for the opprtunity to work/volunteer in your laboratory. You left an indelible impression on the students and myself.

Congratulations Mark!
