Professor Andrew Hattersley is awarded the 2016 EASD-Novo Nordisk Foundation Diabetes Prize for Excellence.
Andrew Hattersley, professor at the University of Exeter Medical School, and diabetes consultant at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital has focused his research for the last 25 years on understanding the genetic forms of diabetes known as monogenic diabetes. This has led to not only new scientific insights but also new approaches to diagnosis and treatment for the patients.
“Gene discovery is the beginning of improving patient care.”
