The 2017 Recognition of Distinction demonstrate the department's commitment to excellence in research and teaching and reflect our world-renowned multidisciplinary approach to medical research.

Congratulations to all our researchers who have been conferred the title of Professor, Associate Professor and University Research Lecturer, in the 2017 Recognition of Distinction.

Professors

Karen Barker"I am delighted to be recognised by the university which is both personally gratifying but also a significant milestone for the physiotherapy services across the Oxford University Hospitals.  I look forward to continuing my close collaboration with colleagues across the University and further progressing the scope and impact of physiotherapy research within the clinical academic partnership."

Karen Barker, Professor of Physiotherapy 

 

Andrew Judge

"This is a great honour and a huge personal achievement for me. Particularly as a statistician from a non clinical background and being relatively young in my career to achieve such a milestone. It is entirely a reflection of the substantial help, mentorship and support I have received from the people in this department, and the many opportunities that I have had to progress rapidly. It has been wonderful to collaborate and work with such a wide range of colleagues from across the whole of NDORMS whose support has made this possible for me."

Andrew Judge, Professor of Translational Statistics 

 

Associate Professors

Stephanie Dakin

"I am delighted to receive this award for the recognition of my research outputs and Departmental contributions. I am grateful for the support of colleagues and collaborators, and excited about the future of our research and teaching within NDORMS."

Stephanie Dakin, Associate Professor 

 

 

University Research Lecturers

Rafael Pinedo Villanueva"For me, being awarded the title of University Research Lecturer is a recognition not only of my own research and teaching, but also of the successful integration of health economics and outcomes research into the highly cross-disciplinary research we conduct in the Department. I am positively inspired by this award."

Rafael Pinedo-Villanueva, University Research Lecturer and Senior Research Associate in Health Economics


Sarah Snelling

"I am delighted that both my research and the work I carry out to support the life of the department has been recognised by the University. The academic pathway can lack clear milestones and the recognition of distinction exercise has helped provide tangible goals and motivation for my future research and teaching activities."

Sarah Snelling, University Research Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow
