Within the SEEK team we are extremely proud to be able to congratulate Professor Carole Goble who has been awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for services to science. She was awarded this in the 2014 New Years Honours list.
Within the UK, this is a prestigious award selected by the Government for whom they feel have provided a significant contribution to society. CBE falls above the lesser awards of OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) and MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire). More details about this award and its history can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_British_Empire
Carole will be presented with the award by Queen Elizabeth II, and be provided with a particularly impressive looking medal.
Well done Carole, and we all feel it is very much deserved.
