The THE Awards are widely recognised as the Oscars of the higher education sector. 

Each year hundreds of entries that exemplify the talent, dedication and innovation of individuals and teams across all aspects of university life, showing us countless reasons why our institutions continue to prosper.

This year, Professor Christine Le Maitre, Professor of Cell Biology and Tissue Regeneration in Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year. 

The Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year will be given to the individual who has created the most supportive, stimulating and inspirational research environment for doctoral students. 

Professor Christine Le Maitre is an inspirational, award-winning research supervisor at Sheffield Hallam University. She is an outstanding mentor to students from diverse backgrounds, with a reputation for consistently going ‘above and beyond’. Reflecting this, Christine has been nominated by students for the Sheffield Hallam Inspirational Supervisor Award nine years running, winning the prestigious award twice. She has also led her department to the top of national postgraduate student satisfaction ratings.


Christine's students have come from a variety of backgrounds, with nearly half being international, including from countries that have experienced conflict. Student feedback demonstrates that she has provided exceptional support, particularly to those facing a myriad of life challenges.


She is also leading efforts to promote wellbeing within research on an institution wide basis, leading the University Postgraduate Research Mental Health and Wellbeing Group and producing an Institutional Action Plan to help address the issue.
