Professor Nick Lemoine, Director of Barts Cancer Institute at Queen Mary University of London, has received a CBE for services to clinical research.

The award particularly recognises work undertaken during Covid-19, including chairing the Urgent Public Health group to deliver a range of Covid-19 studies under the National Institute for Health Research. 

Describing the announcement as a huge honour, Professor Lemoine hailed the award as a result of a strong collective effort. 

Professor Ali Jawad, Professor of Rheumatology at Queen Mary University of London’s Faculty of Medicine, has been awarded an OBE for services to Healthcare. 

In a long and distinguished career, Professor Jawad has held a range of roles within Barts Health and Queen Mary, even coming out of retirement to help with the response to Covid-19. 

Professor Jawad said he was overwhelmed to receive the honour. 

He added: “For me, patients are at the heart of everything we do - from medical education to developing new treatments. It’s all about them.”
