Professor Eleanor Stride

Professor Eleanor Stride, Statutory Professor of Biomaterials in the Department of Engineering Science, is appointed OBE for services to engineering.  

Professor Stride said: 'It was the most incredible and wonderful surprise. I still feel quite overwhelmed but also even more motivated to drive forward our research and to continue to work closely with the Royal Academy to support and promote Engineering.'

Professor Stride specialises in the fabrication of nano and microscale devices for targeted drug delivery. She was made a fellow of the ERA Foundation for her contributions to public engagement and promotion of engineering and was nominated as one of the top 100 most influential Women in Engineering in 2016 and 2019.

Professor Stride was also made a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2017 and an honorary fellow of the IET in 2020.
