Professor Gladden also received an OBE for services to chemistry in the 2001 New Year's honours list. Her other awards include a Tilden Medal and Lectureship by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the year 2001/2002 and the Beilby Medal and Prize by the Royal Society of Chemistry in 1995.

Professor Mackley was recently awarded the 2002 British Society of Rheology Annual award for his work on the rheology and processing of polymer molecules. He was also awarded a prize in the AspenTech Innovative Business Practice Award for his work on Oscillatory Flow Reactors.
