This month, the Cobra team is delighted to have received a pair of shiny new industry awards, recognising the company's contribution to the fight against COVID-19, and in providing an alternative route to the workplace through advanced therapies apprenticeships.
Showcasing the best of this world class sector, the prestigious Bionow Awards recognise the outstanding success and achievements of those who have worked tirelessly throughout the year and spotlight the incredible progress that has been made during this challenging period.
Peter Coleman, CEO, Nick Smith, Associate Director Operations, and Sarah Davies, Head of Production, (plus a very special little guest) attended the virtual ceremony on the 4th February and were delighted to walk away with the Bionow Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic Award (sponsored by Appleyard Lees) for the project "tech transfer and manufacturing drug substance scale-up of the Oxford COVID-19 Vaccine". A new award category for 2021, it was conceived to reward research or innovation that has the potential to deliver a significant contribution to the understanding of, and response to, the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.
As one of the eight founding companies of ATAC, during a Lunch and Learn event celebrating National Apprenticeships Week on the 12th February, Corrine Ward, HR Advisor, and Charlie Anderson, QC Apprentice, were presented with the Pioneer Employer and Outstanding Contributor Award for Cobra's role in getting ATAC off the ground.
