Janice Limson

Head of Biotechnology, Rhodes University

Her contemporaries describe her as one of Rhodes University's most flamboyant lecturers. And having hand-raised a wild caracal kitten to adulthood and considering saying "yes� as one of her greatest achievements, it is easy to understand why. Currently a senior lecturer and head of biotechnology at Rhodes University, as well as editor of Science in Africa magazine, she is also the winner of the Highway Africa New Media in Journalism and a National Science and Technology Forum Award. Raised in the windy city of Port Elizabeth, she is continuously amazed by science's "wow� moments that goes with discovering a new process or pathway. � Liesl Venter
