Dermatology Professor Receives OBE in New Year’s Honours

Professor Chris Griffiths, Foundation Professor of Dermatology at The University of Manchester and Consultant Dermatologist at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, has been awarded the Order of the British Empire for his services to Dermatology.

Professor Griffiths has a particular interest in psoriasis, and is a longstanding supporter of the Psoriasis Association and contributor to our Medical and Research Committee. He is also Director of Psoriasis Stratification to Optimise Relevant Therapy (PSORT) – an exciting multi-million pound study into personalising treatment approaches for psoriasis, and is Chief Investigator of the British Association of Dermatologists Biologic Interventions Register (BADBIR).

Professor Griffiths has published a great deal of research into all aspects of psoriasis, and also introduced a multidisciplinary clinic for severe psoriasis at the Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust in 1994, which he still directs today.

On being awarded the Honour, Professor Griffiths said “I am truly delighted and humbled to receive this award which in part recognises my work on psoriasis and I believe helps to raise the profile of dermatology nationally.”
