Professor Barry Scott with Distinguished Professor David Penny.


Institute honours staff

Long-serving staff at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences were honoured at an event at the Manawatu campus last week.

Institute head Professor Barry Scott presented 16 staff with an award marking their years of service.

Among those to receive awards were Distinguished Professor David Penny and Robert Cleaver, who have been at Massey University for more than 40 years.

Professor Scott says the awards recognise the commitment the staff members, both academic and general, have made to the institute and the University.

“The teaching and research success of the institute relies on all the staff,” he says. “We are a team that works together toward common goals. I value the contribution of all staff in helping us achieve our goals. Recognition of long service is a very important part of the institute’s values, because the corporate knowledge and continuity provided by long-serving staff underpin our success.”
