Genomics England’s former Chairman, Jon Symonds CBE, has been Knighted for services to UK Life Sciences and Finance. Jon brought tremendous leadership, insight and direction to Genomics England during his tenure as Chairman, and his firm belief in the potential for genomic science to transform the way in which healthcare is delivered has been critical in driving our vision. We are very fortunate to have Jon’s continuing insights and direction as he continues to serve on the Board, and are delighted that his service has been recognised in this way.
Professor Dame Sally Davies DBE has also been further recognised, with the Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath, for her services to Public Health and Research. Her experience and broad knowledge continue to be invaluable in her capacity on our Board and we are tremendously grateful for her guidance and support.
We offer them both our warmest congratulations for this very well deserved recognition.
