Our medical director Dr Subha Thiyagesh has been awarded the title of Visiting Professor at the University of Huddersfield.
The title of Visiting Professor is awarded to a person who has academic or professional standing equivalent to that of a professor and who collaborates with University staff on research and teaching programmes to produce measurable outcomes.
Subha’s honorary title is within the School of Human and Health Sciences and has been awarded for an initial period of 5 years.
Subha was awarded the title in recognition of her strong experience and interest in teaching and in active clinical research, backed by her doctorate in medicine in functional neuroimaging.
Speaking of the title, Subha said: “It was an amazing feeling to be awarded the title, I was absolutely delighted. I had a prior research career, but I didn’t expect this at all. I think it’s an absolute privilege to be able to collaborate further with University of Huddersfield and enhance the relationship between our trust and the university to innovate and conduct research in order to improve care.
“As the director of the Trust’s research and development team, I am keen to show a continued growth in our research capability and wider collaboration with stakeholders, in particular with the university.
“The research and development team are so pleased and have been very supportive of me throughout the awarding process. As a team we are hoping that this opens more doors for us to become more visible and further our research profile across the region.”
