CBE for Matthew Hotopf in Queen's Birthday Honours 2018

Professor Matthew Hotopf, Vice Dean of Research at IoPPN and Director of the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre has been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to Psychiatric Research.

Matthew Hotopf is Professor of General Hospital Psychiatry and his research explores the interaction between mental and physical health. He has worked extensively in areas where mental health relates to other walks of life – including military health, mental health law, and epidemiological studies on the impact of mental disorders.  He is an NIHR Senior Investigator and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Of his award, Professor Hotopf says, ‘I am deeply honoured to receive this award.  It represents the contributions of a huge number of people in my research team, the NIHR BRC at the Maudsley and the wider academic community at King’s College London, working to improve the profile of mental health research and ultimately to benefit people with mental health problems.

Professor Ian Everall, Executive Dean of the IoPPN said, ‘Matthew is one of the most wonderful medical researchers of his generation, his stewardship of the BRC has been outstanding and this honour is incredibly well deserved.’
