Congratulations to Dr Mike Weekes who was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Weekes developed a comprehensive COVID-19 screening programme for all Cambridge University Hospitals healthcare workers, and Cambridge University staff and students with symptoms of COVID-19.   He simultaneously continued to lead his laboratory research at CIMR on how viruses evade intracellular defences.
