CTRU Deputy Director Professor Jane Nixon has been made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen's Birthday honours.
Reacting to the news Professor Nixon said: I am honoured that this work is being recognised in such a prestigious way. But it is important to say that the results stem from the commitment of NHS patients, nursing teams, doctors and a high calibre clinical trials team led by Professor Julia Brown.
High quality clinical research is a team enterprise without the team there would be no findings on which we can build better care.
The news comes just after the Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) celebrated its 25 Year Anniversary with an event on the 15 June.
