LLJ Lead researcher honoured in UK New Year Honours List

Anne Neville’s, Professor of Tribology and Surface Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds, distinguished career and contribution to engineering has been honoured. She has been made an Officer of the (Most Excellent) Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the UK New Year’s Honours list for services to engineering. Among many achievements cited, her research group was the first to be able to monitor corrosion in a full hip joint simulator, which enabled the team to understand corrosion processes and link this to lubrication of the joint in a way previously not possible. LLJ is building on this knowledge.

Commenting on her honour, Professor Neville note “Connecting that knowledge together with industrial partners and contributing to improving lives is hugely rewarding…” something which is embodied in LLJ as many leading academics are working with industrial partners to try improve the longevity of hip implants.

The UK honours system recognises people who have made achievements in public life and committed themselves to serving and helping Britain. An OBE is a significant award. Nominations for an honour can be made by anyone. The honours committee then decide if and what honour to award – see www.gov.uk/honours/overview.

Many congratulations Anne!
