Professor Saul Faust has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Jubilee Birthday Honours.

The Professor of Paediatric Immunology and Infectious Diseases at the University of Southampton and Consultant Paediatrician at University Hospital Southampton (UHS) played a leading role in the national COVID-19 vaccination programme.

During the pandemic, Southampton researchers and medics led and supported multiple studies that helped to determine the safety and effectiveness of vaccines for use in adults and children across the world.

Professor Faust said: “I am deeply humbled and grateful to be recognised in the Queen’s Jubilee Honours. Although this award is to me, I couldn’t have done any of my work during the pandemic without the amazing research teams across Southampton, Dorset, Hampshire, South Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight. And of course, nothing would have been possible without the public coming forward to take part in the vaccine trials that are still continuing today.”
