The Human Tissue Authority is delighted to announce that its Chair, Sharmila Nebhrajani, has been awarded an OBE in today's birthday honours.
Sharmila, who is currently the Chief Executive of the Association of Medical Research Charities, and has been Chair of the HTA since April 2014, was given her honour for services to medical research.
Sharmila Nebhrajani said: "There are few more important endeavours, to my mind, than seeking understanding of - and possible cures for - debilitating diseases. I feel very honoured (and perhaps a little embarrassed!) that my very modest contribution to furthering the cause of medical research has been recognised in this way."
The HTA is very proud of this achievement.
