DTU appoints new Senior Clinical Researcher


We are delighted to announce that Dr Jyothis George has joined the Diabetes Trials Unit (DTU) as a Senior Clinical Researcher.

Jyothis has moved from the University of Edinburgh, where he completed his PhD and specialist training in diabetes, endocrinology and internal medicine. His translational research has involved first-in-human studies of two novel neuropeptides (kisspeptin-10, GnIH) - and their translational applications in people with diabetes and other endocrine disorders.

Within the DTU, Jyothis will be the European Clinical Lead for the (EXenatide Study of Cardiovascular Event Lowering) EXSCEL trial, and will work on early phase studies with the Translational Research Group (TRG), including eHealth initiatives in diabetes.

Jyothis will also work as a diabetes consultant in OCDEM, providing specialist care for people with diabetes and other endocrine diseases.

We wish him every success in his new role.
