Sadaf Farooqi, MB, ChB (Hons), PhD – 2019 Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award

while my most inspiring mentor has been Professor Steven O'Reilly who's this year's Banting Medal Award winner and it's really when I started as a research fellow in Steve's lab that really my journey into obesity research began well of course are very aware that diabetes and obesity are major clinical problems and I have many family members who've suffered with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and also with weight problems and we know that we have very little to offer for those people where I hope that I've been able to show through my research and hope to continue to show is that really insights from patients are fundamental to understanding disease and finding new treatments I would encourage young people to think about if they're embarking upon research or thinking about research is really to ask big bold and important questions don't do what everybody else does think outside the box
