Recognition for pioneering regenerative medicine professor

David Williams OBE FREng, Professor of Healthcare Engineering at Loughborough’s School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering was recently awarded the IChemE Donald Medal for his substantial contribution to the rapidly growing regenerative medicine sector.

Professor Williams was one of twenty-five professionals across research and industry to be awarded with IChemE medals and prizes in 2016. The awards honour those who have significantly contributed to research breakthroughs, inspired young engineers or have made a significant contribution to a particular industrial field.

In his current tenure as Professor of Healthcare Engineering, Professor Williams has established a state-of-the-art manufacturing research facility that supports the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine, a leading doctoral training initiative which is making a positive contribution to the UK’s regenerative medicine industry.

Professor Williams has also received an OBE for his services to science and engineering in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, 2014.

The Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering is a special place to work. It has a strong applied research culture focusing on solutions to real world problems. This research culture, combined with the unique group of colleagues I have here, enabled me to make the contributions that led to the medal award.
