University of Surrey receives award at Buckingham Palace

Published at 6:01am 24th February 2018.

The University of Surrey received The Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education earlier this week.

The institution is celebrating half a century of pioneering health research, winning the award for the fourth time.

The prize was presented by Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall, on behalf of The Queen.

President and Vice Chancellor Max Lu, and Professor Sue Lanham-New of the university attended the special ceremony on Thursday (22 February).

The accolade was given in appreciation of the groundbreaking research undertaken by the University of Surrey in fields including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and osteoporosis.

It has helped to bring about major changes in government policy and consumer perception through part of the work's focus on food labelling.

Professor Susan Lanham-New, Head of the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the university, said that she was "delighted" that the institution had received the prize.

She added: "This prestigious award is a result of all the hard work of staff in furthering the field of nutrition through our teaching and research."

"Nutrition is an important component of all our lives and the significance of a well-balanced diet should never be underestimated."
