Women in science we admire

Susan Turland

Susan Turland nominated by Tracey McHugh

It was such an inspiration to find Susan Turland as my chemistry teacher.  I remember her speaking of her work on anticancer complexes, you could see and hear how much she loved the work she did and it reminded me of why I came back to uni as a mature aged student - I want to find that passion in my career! This summer I worked on a system she helped design for teaching organic chemistry, MolyPoly, and again was inspired as I learnt how much time and effort she put into a system for the benefit of helping students learn.
