Professor Lynn Faith Gladden, Shell Professor of Chemical Engineering and Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge, has been awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for services to Chemical Engineering.
This follows the award of an OBE New Year's honours list in 2001 and Prof Gladden said, "I fully recognise that I would not be receiving this award were it not for the entire staff of my Department past and present and, in particular, the support of my research group."
She added that, along with the recognition of Bill Wakeham and Ian Shott in the Honours List, this is really great news for chemical engineering as a discipline.
Professor William Arnot Wakeham is Vice-Chancellor, University of Southampton and he received a knighthood for services to Chemical Engineering and to Higher Education. Ian Shott, CEO of pharmaceutical services company, Excelsyn, and 68th President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, has received a CBE for services to the Chemical Engineering Industry.
