These projects include a Teaching & Learning Centre, Clinical Research Facilities, the recently-opened Imaging Centre of Excellence (ICE) -- home to Scotland's first ultra-high resolution 7 Tesla MRI scanner -- and the development of the £20m Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre.

As well as benefits to patients, these projects will create up to 700 jobs and bring £100m to the local economy, and ensure Glasgow is recognised as a global centre of excellence for biomedical innovation.  

Dr Clugston said: "I am delighted to be receiving the Lord Provost's Award in the category of health, particularly because it's a privilege to be working at the University of Glasgow and to be doing a job that doesnt really feel like it's a job.

"Although this award is in my name, I see it very much as recognising the whole team that has been involved in the new academic infrastructure at the QEUH and implementing the vision that has been led by Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak in Precision Medicine."

The Lord Provost's Awards are given each year to mark the special contribution of an individual or organisation to the well-being of Glasgow or its people; or to mark a distinguished contribution within a specific field.
