Healthcare regulatory professionals recognised

TOPRA is delighted that two leading regulatory scientists have been recognised by the Science Council. Former TOPRA president, David Jefferys (pictured), and leading UK regulator Professor Sir Mike Rawlins are listed among the 100 top UK scientists by the Science Council under the Monitor/Regulator category.

‘TOPRA put forward both Dr Jefferys and Sir Michael in the Science Council competition to raise the profile of scientists and all the varied roles they can fulfil,’ said Lynda Wight, TOPRA Executive Director. ‘We are pleased that our nominees have been endorsed by the independent judging panel. It goes to show that regulatory science is an excellent example of how science is put to important use for the public good outside of the laboratory.’

Monitor/Regulator scientists are becoming increasingly important as more science and technology becomes part of everyday life, and society needs the increasing reassurance that systems and technology are reliable and safe and are seen to be reliable and safe.

Responding to the announcement, David Jefferys said ‘This is a great honour and a recognition of the importance of regulatory science and the contribution of the profession to public health both in the UK and globally’.
