The Institute of Food Research (IFR) in Norwich has appointed two
new communications staff as it seeks a higher profile. Jo Belsten,
previously a nutrition researcher, has moved to be press and media
officer and graduate Helen Penny has been appointed as science
communications officer. Belsten will promote scientific activities,
while Penny will promote the community projects that have been funded by
the Millennium Commission. The two take the communications team, which
is managed by Catherine Reynolds, up to five.
