Cambridge University’s Professor David Krishna Menon, renowned for his pioneering work in neurocritical care, has been awarded the Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by King Charles III in the annual Birthday Honours list.

Professor Menon, originally from Delhi and trained at JIPMER in Pondicherry, has made significant strides in neurosciences, particularly in traumatic brain injury. He founded the Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU) at Addenbrooke’s NHS hospital in Cambridge, where he serves as the Head of Division of Anaesthesia.

Expressing his gratitude for the honor, Professor Menon remarked, “I am deeply honored to receive the CBE, accepting it on behalf of all who have supported my career.” His leadership at NCCU has led to advancements in neurocritical care training in the UK, improving outcomes for patients with severe head injuries and acute intracranial hemorrhages.

At Cambridge, Professor Menon directs research at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre and the van Geest Centre for Brain Repair. He has played pivotal roles in international research initiatives like the CENTER-TBI Consortium and the UK Traumatic Brain Injury Research Platform, contributing to over 650 peer-reviewed publications.

Recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate, Professor Menon continues to influence global neuroscientific understanding and treatment. His CBE accolade this year underscores his enduring impact on neurocritical care and research.

Alongside Professor Menon, Dipesh Jayantilal Shah, Chair of National Highways England, was also honored for his contributions to transport services.

The accolades highlight the significant achievements of Indian-origin professionals in enriching public and private sectors in the UK.
