Sir Mene Pangalos, AstraZeneca executive vice-president, biopharmaceuticals R&D, said: “I’m delighted that eight of my colleagues have been awarded these special honours by Her Majesty. Equally, I’m incredibly proud of all 81,000-plus AstraZeneca employees globally for the role they have played in responding to this pandemic.

“Many have worked around the clock in the past 12 months and have put their lives on hold to commit to a bigger humanitarian cause, positively impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe.”

The honours represent achievements in:

  • Early pandemic response to support AstraZeneca’s 8,300-plus employees in the UK to ensure business continuity and uninterrupted supply of medicines to patients across the world.
  • Research, development and regulatory preparedness to ensure continued access and supply of AstraZeneca medicines throughout the pandemic and after the UK left the EU.
  • Working with partners to develop and build the national test centre in Cambridge to analyse over 100,000 samples each week for the national testing programme.
