Professor Gladden was awarded an OBE in the New Year's honours list of 2001, for services to chemistry. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Physics. She is also a chartered engineer and chartered chemist. In 1996 she was awarded a Miller Visiting Professorship at the University of California, Berkeley and in 2000, the Tilden lectureship and silver medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry. She is currently Shell Professor of Chemical Engineering, and has recently been appointed to the governing council of EPSRC (the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) and elected to the Council of the Royal Society.

She takes over as Head of Department from Professor Howard Chase, who held the reins from October 1998. He originally took on the Headship for 5 years.
