2 December 2021 – C4X Discovery Holdings plc (AIM: C4XD), a pioneering Drug Discovery company, today announces that its Chief Executive Officer, Dr Clive Dix BSc PhD HonFBPhS, has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the British Pharmacological Society in recognition of sustained excellence and leadership in science, healthcare, and public service.

Eva-Lotta Allan, Chairman of C4X Discovery, said: “The award of an Honorary Fellowship by the prestigious British Pharmacological Society is testament to Clive’s accomplishments and the important work he continues to do for the British healthcare industry and further afield.  As part of the team here at C4XD, we are very proud to be working with Clive.  Throughout his career, Clive has strived to promote British science at its best and this award shines a light on the important contribution Clive has made.  Looking at the past year alone, he served as Interim Chair of the UK Vaccines Taskforce, where he was integral to the successful selection and roll-out of vaccines in the UK. Under his leadership we also signed our second deal, this time with Sanofi for total value up to €414 million. All of these achievements have only been possible because of Clive’s tireless determination to deliver life changing medicines to patients in need, and we congratulate him on this well-deserved Honorary Fellowship.”
