Professor Rajesh Thakker

Professor Thakker receives his OBE for services to Medical Science and to People with Hereditary and Rare Disorders. He said: ‘I am delighted to receive this honour on behalf of the endocrine community and the Nuffield and Radcliffe Departments of Medicine. I would like to thank my wonderful team of clinical and scientific researchers and global collaborators, whose dedicated work has elucidated molecular mechanisms for endocrine and metabolic diseases, that has also facilitated translation of scientific advances into benefits for patients.

‘Patients are central to all our work and their courage and determination to triumph over many adversities has been a constant inspiration. I am indebted to all of them and the medical research funding organisations for their support.’
