Diabetes - the changing face of a global epidemic
Over the last 40 years, diabetes has emerged as a major health threat across the globe. However, its' manifestations are changing, as ‘development’ spreads and as improved healthcare starts to address some of the classical complications of diabetes.
Professor Jonathan Shaw underwent his clinical and research training in the UK. At Melbourne’s Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, he runs a large research section focussing on epidemiology and clinical research in diabetes, and is also a consultant physician in the diabetes services. He has authored over 350 peer‐reviewed scientific papers and 35 book chapters. He is the Chair of the National Diabetes Data Working Group, Past‐President of the International Diabetes Epidemiology Group, was awarded the global Novartis Diabetes Award (for research) in 2006, and in 2011 was awarded the International Diabetes Epidemiology Group Peter Bennett award. In 2014, he was included in the Thomson Reuters The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds, which lists the 1% most highly cited scientists in the world since 2002. In 2015, he was awarded the Australian Diabetes Society's Jeff Flack Diabetes Data award.
