The graduation ceremony took place on Thursday 8 July at Coats Memorial Baptist Church, Paisley Scotland, where Dr Buttar received her Doctorate for her contribution to life sciences.

Professor Seamus McDaid, Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of the West of Scotland, said: “We are delighted to award Dr Buttar with an Honorary Doctorate. As Chief Executive of ClinTec International, she is one of the country’s most important business leaders, making a hugely important contribution to the Scottish economy.”

ClinTec International was founded by Dr Buttar in 1997 and provides specialist clinical personnel and support services to pharmaceutical and biotech companies worldwide.  The company currently employs 250 people and operates in over 40 countries across the globe.

Dr Buttar, who is an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Clinical Research UK, was recently named the Ernst & Young Scottish Entrepreneur of the Year in June and the Institute of Directors Regional Director of the Year in March earlier this year.

Dr Buttar stated in her address to the Faculty of Science "The University has created an exceptional pool of local and international graduates and I am honoured to accept this degree. These graduates here today have successfully completed this chapter of their lives and as they open the next one their learning should never stop.  In the current challenging times, graduates should seek local as well as global opportunities, look to do something they feel passionate about, be even more determined and success will be in their hands. The University and its excellent staff have prepared them well for the challenges that lie ahead.  I am privileged to join the Court and Senate today”.
