Prof Michael Nauck
Head of Clinical Research at the Diabetes Division Medical Department of St. Josef-Hospital, Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany.
Professor Nauck’s research interests include the pivotal role of gastrointestinal peptide hormones, including incretins, in both the physiological and therapeutic regulation of metabolism, as well as in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. His groundbreaking contributions have been significant in shaping the treatment landscape of type 2 diabetes. He has played a pivotal role in developing novel therapeutic agents based on anti-diabetic properties of the gut hormone including GLP-1 (or Glucagon-like peptide-1).
His extensive scholarly output is underscored by numerous publications, and his outstanding scientific contributions have been honoured with several awards and accolades, including the Paul Langerhans Medal (2012) bestowed by the German Diabetes Association, and the Claude Bernard Medal from the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in 2022.
