Congratulations to the seven researchers at NDORMS who were awarded new titles in the University's 2018 Recognition of Distinction exercise.

This recognition demonstrates our staff's commitment to excellence in research and teaching and reflects the department's world-renowned multidisciplinary approach to medical research.

The recipients are:

PROFESSORS

“Although rewarded at a personal level, an Oxford Professor title is in my experience the result of team work. The Pharmaco- and Device Epidemiology research group at CSM-NDORMS has worked hard to become an internationally recognised unit. I will proudly hold this new title as a badge that recognises our past, current, and future work in the field of drug and medical device observational research.”

 Daniel Prieto-Alhambra, Professor of Pharmaco and Device Epidemiology 

 

 “It is a real honour to be appointed to this post in Translational Inflammation Research. I hope it will help the Kennedy in particular and NDORMS in general lead the way in new and innovative Experimental Medicine studies with colleagues in Oxford and Birmingham”

Christopher Buckley, Professor of Translation Inflammation Research  

 

 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSORS

"I am thrilled to be recognised by the University for my research outputs, teaching and citizenship. This award is a significant milestone in my career and also reflects the support of past and present colleagues, collaborators and students."

 Sarah Snelling, Associate Professor 

 

 

"It is a great honour to be recognised for my academic achievements and service to the University. I owe special thanks to my students for their efforts over the years that have made our scientific research programme possible."

 John Christianson, Associate Professor

 

 

"I am very pleased to receive this award for the recognition of my research and that of my team, along with contributions to NDORMS and the University as a whole. I am grateful for the continued support of colleagues within the NDORMS family, and excited about our plans for the future development of Ageing studies within NDORMS."

James Edwards, Arthritis Research UK Career Development Fellow 

 

University Research Lecturers

"I am delighted with this recognition by the wider academic community of the value of my work and unconventional academic path! As an applied statistician working on clinical trials with multidisciplinary teams, my role is crucial to achieving successful grant applications and trial publications, but seldom translates to Chief Investigator. It is very encouraging to have my commitment, dedication, and key contributions to successful research recognised at this level."

Susan Dutton, OCTRU Lead Statistician 

  

“Receiving the University Research Lecturers award is a great recognition of my research and teaching achievements and also highlights how myself and my team have integrated into NDORMS since my appointment in 2016.”

Gillian Farnie, University Research Lecturer and Cellular Assays Group Leader
