Dr Jo Sheldon receives prestigious Royal College of Pathology award!

In September we congratulated Dr Jo Sheldon, Consultant Immunologist, on being awarded a Royal College of Pathologists medal for services to pathology, training and public engagement. Only 16 of these medals have ever been awarded and it is one of the most prestigious of the college!

Jo was presented with her medal by the President of the Royal College of Pathologists, Dr Suzy Lishman in March 2017. In awarding her medal Dr Lishman‟s speech included the following:

“Jo has been the creative driving force behind the Royal College of Pathologist‟s very successful exhibits at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show over a period of 13 years. The exhibits have been awarded two gold, five silver-gilt, one silver and one bronze medal. In 2016 Jo was the driving force behind the publication of a book, Low Allergy Gardening, which was written at the suggestion of The Queen when she visited the exhibit in 2012.

“Jo has contributed in many other ways to College business – in particular, her involvement in training and exams. One of Jo’s trainees wrote to the President to ask if there was a way in which Jo’s much appreciated contribution as a trainer could be recognised.

“In addition to being an inspirational role model for laboratory scientists, her leadership and willingness to nurture future generations of scientists and clinicians in immunology has been exemplary.”
