The Queen’s Birthday Honours are designed to celebrate the achievements and service of people across the UK, from all walks of life.
This year’s Honours List, announced on Saturday 12 June, included several of the UK’s health researchers, many of whom have been central to the UK’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic – a resounding endorsement for the importance of sector and its vital role in the last 18 months.
Health Data Research UK is incredibly proud that those honoured include members of our own community, especially our Research Director for Clinical Trials, Sir Martin Landray, co-lead of the RECOVERY Trial.
The recognition demonstrates the positive, real-world impact of using health data at scale in a secure and transparent way can have to enable life-saving research.
