Academics from across Oxford University have been honoured for their services in the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours List, published as Her Majesty celebrates her Platinum Jubilee. Professor Charlotte Deane of the Department of Statistics is appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for Services to COVID-19 research.  

I am absolutely delighted to receive this honour. I was very fortunate to be part of an amazing team across UKRI that worked above and beyond to ensure that the UK’s amazing research community, both academic and industrial, was able to bring its collective power to bear across all of the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, from economic and cultural to social and medical.
