Chris Askew OBE, Chief Executive of Diabetes UK, will also be speaking. He said: “Sir Stephen continues in the footsteps of the doctors, scientists, whose discovery and subsequent saving of millions of lives was one of the most important medical breakthroughs of all time. Diabetes UK has been working with scientists since 1934 sharing their knowledge and tackling diabetes together. But there is still many things to be done. Diabetes UK is committed funding research and helping to advance the causes of diabetes.

The Royal Society of Medicine plays an important role in sharing scientific understanding of conditions such as diabetes, which impacts so many families in the UK and across the globe. We are thrilled that our Honorary Fellow, Professor Sir Stephen O’Rahilly, will be enlightening our audience during this public lecture, sharing his unique perspective on the human metabolic science.”
