Professor Upthegrove, whose research currently focuses on developing new treatments for psychosis, has been appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for Services to Mental Health and Life Sciences Research.

She will join the Department of Psychiatry as the Director-Designate of the Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre and Senior Clinical Researcher, having joined from the University of Birmingham where she is currently Professor of Psychiatry and Youth Mental Health, and Consultant Psychiatrist in the Birmingham Early Intervention Service.

Professor Upthegrove said:

I am thrilled to have been honoured with an MBE for services to mental health research. Improving our understanding of mental illness and creating new and effective interventions and therapies is vitally important, especially for those experiencing mental ill health and their families. I am proud this work has been recognised.

This is a testament to the many collaborators, colleagues, patients and researchers who I have worked with nationally and internationally and specifically at the University of Birmingham and University of Oxford over recent years who have been absolutely critical to making progress in this field and improving the lives of patients.”
