A Professor of Diabetic Medicine at Oxford has been recognised in Japan for his research into the medical condition.
Professor Rury Holman, founder of the Diabetics Trial Unit, was awarded the ‘Outstanding Foreign Investigation Award’ by the Japan Society of Diabetic Complications after launching two major studies: the ongoing
4-T trial compares the safety of insulin treatments for those suffering from Type 2 diabetes, whilst the UK Prospective Diabetes Study assessed over 5000 patients, with its findings providing more insight into how the condition can be controlled. Professor Holman said that he was ‘delighted’ on receiving his award.
