Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed
The University’s David Weatherall Chair in Medicine, Professor Munir Pirmohamed, has been knighted by the Prince of Wales at a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Sir Munir who is also Consultant Physician at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, holds the only NHS Chair in Pharmacogenetics in the UK and is Director of the Medical Research Council’s Centre for Drug Safety Sciences.
His knighthood, which was announced in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List this year, is in recognition for his services to medicine.
Sir Munir said: “I am truly delighted to have received this honour. It is a privilege for me to have worked with so many wonderful people and organisations in the UK and beyond, who strive to make a difference to people’s lives by improving how we develop and use medicines.
“This honour not only recognises my work, but also the efforts of the whole team at the University of Liverpool and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, who work tirelessly to advance the practice of medicine for patient benefit.”
His research, which spans the whole spectrum from discovery to implementation, focuses on individual variability in drug response, including anti-cancer drugs, with a view to evaluating the mechanisms and identifying strategies to personalise healthcare.
Great honour and an excellent achievement!
