Professor Hannah Gould recognised at the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology Annual Meeting

One of our Centre Professors, Professor Hannah Gould, was awarded with the 2018 Jack Pepys Lecture Prize from the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at their annual meeting held in Telford.

This award is given to researchers for their outstanding contributions to the science of allergy and clinical immunology. Professor Gould gave her prize lecture titled ‘B Cell Repertoire in Allergic Disease’ where she covered her many areas of research including the biology of IgE and the basis of allergic disease.

The award is named after Jack Pepys Professor of Clinical Immunology at the Brompton Hospital in London from 1967 to 1979 and the “father” of British clinical allergy

Of the award, Professor Gould said: ‘I am very happy for my research to be recognised by my own country’s top Allergy and Clinical Immunology organisation (British Society Allergy and Clinical Immunology), following those from the corresponding organisation in Europe (European Academy of Allergy Asthma and Clinical Immunology EAACI in Copenhagen in 2014) and America (American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology AAAAI in Los Angeles in 2016).

I ended my talk by saying that all credit goes to the postdocs and students who have worked in my lab.

The silver plaque I was given will be added to the Athena Swan display case in the main foyer of New Hunt’s House alongside those of other ladies in the Randall Centre, Anna Davies and Susan Cox.”
