This will be Garry Tan, who many will remember as a Specialist Trainee and D.Phil student working with Fredrik Karpe. This is a permanent post, primarily clinical but also research. Garry has led the diabetes service in Derby for the last 5 years having previously worked in the University Hospital in Nottingham. In Derby City he set up an innovative company that managed diabetes across the whole spectrum from hospital to primary care. He has been very active on a national as well as a local level. He has interests in obesity, lipodystrophy and basic and translational work with cannabinoids. We are delighted that he will be joining us as an OCDEM PI.
