Professor shortlisted for award celebrating outstanding women

Professor Diana Anderson, Established Chair of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Bradford has been shortlisted for an award celebrating outstanding women in the North of England.

The English Women’s Awards 2018 – North aims to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of women entrepreneurs, business women, professionals, civil servants, charity workers and many more across the North of England.

Professor Anderson was nominated and voted for by the public and as a result has been shortlisted in the Services to Science & Technology category. Diana has published over 400 papers and has dedicated her life to carrying out cutting-edge research to improve lives. Some of her work includes a blood test to help detect types of cancer and research on how smoking fathers can pass on damaged DNA to their children.

On being shortlisted, Diana said: “I’m delighted to be shortlisted for an award that celebrates the achievements of women and I’m especially proud to be recognized in the Science and Technology category, which is an area where women can often be under-represented.”

The award ceremony will take place in Manchester on 20 March. This is the first year of the English Women’s Awards following the Scottish Women’s Awards last year in Glasgow.
