Irish Professor awarded Honorary CBE

By Dermot - 27th Nov 2015 | 4 views

Professor Owen Smith was conferred “honorary Commander of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire”.

Professor Smith, is a consultant paediatric haematologist at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and principal investigator at the National Children’s Research Centre, Crumlin, and the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Trinity College Dublin.

He is also a special advisor to the new children’s hospital.

He was today awarded Honorary CBE for his life-long work on cancer in children and adolescents.

The award was presented to Professor Smith by Dominick Chilcott, British Ambassador to Ireland at a ceremony in the ambassador’s residence, Glencairn.

“There must be hundreds if not thousands of people who are alive today because of Professor Smith’s pioneering work in the field of blood cancer in children and teenagers over the last 25 years,” said the British Ambassador to Ireland Mr Dominick Chilcott.

“His work has touched children and young people across Ireland, the UK and indeed further afield. He is held in the highest esteem by his peers in the United Kingdom and fully deserves the recognition which his honorary award bestows.”
