A man from Radlett has received royal recognition in the Queens New Years Honours, for his services to scientific research.

Dr Steven John Gamblin from Radlett is Director of Scientific Platforms at The Francis Crick Institute (TFCI).

In January, he received a Commanders of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his outstanding scientific leadership, his contribution to the national COVID effort, and for world-leading research.

Dr Steven Gamblin said: “I’m honoured to receive a CBE. I consider it a tribute to the many extraordinary people I have worked with during my time at the Crick and before that at the NIMR.”

His work helped develop a COVID testing pipeline early in the pandemic, which supported the testing of patients and staff at multiple NHS hospitals and care homes and a research group, directed by Dr Gamblin helped inform vaccine design.

Paul Nurse, Director of the Crick said: “I’m delighted that Steve’s extraordinary contribution to science over so many years has been recognised. He was responsible for multiple challenges in setting up the Crick and rose to them magnificently.

“He has outstanding leadership and organisational skills, which really came to the fore during the COVID-19 pandemic, and he has played an indispensable role, combining a broad strategic perspective with extraordinary attention to detail, while also continuing his world-leading research as a structural biologist.”
