Project Leader for Vaccine Development Receives RSA Albert Medal

Mar 24 2021

Professor Sarah Gilbert, the lead researcher on the Oxford vaccine team has been awarded the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce’ (RSA) Albert Medal.

As Professor of Vaccinology in the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford, she is the Oxford Project Leader for ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, a vaccine against the novel coronavirus, SARSCoV-2, which has approval for use in many countries around the world.

The RSA Albert Medal is awarded annually to recognise the creativity and innovation of individuals and organisations working to resolve the challenges of our time. Professor Gilbert receives the 2021 honour for her services to collaborative innovation for the global common good. She is the 156th recipient of the medal, which was instituted in 1864 as a memorial to Prince Albert, former President of the Society.

Professor Gilbert said: ‘It is a great honour to receive this award. The creation and the development of the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine came after I had worked in this field for many years, learning how to move quickly from a concept to a licensed vaccine, which involves many steps along the way. With a great team at Oxford we developed a ‘vaccine for the world’ which is now being used to save lives in many countries, which was our goal from the very beginning.’
