Mark McCarthy

DALE MEDAL

Professor Mark McCarthy
San Francisco, CA, USA

"I am honoured to be the recipient of the 2022 Dale Medal. Over the past three decades, my research has focused on using human genetics to decipher the processes that are driving common endocrine and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to describe some of this work at the meeting in Harrogate later this year."

INTERNATIONAL MEDAL

Professor Peter Croucher

JUBILEE MEDAL

Professor Adrian Clark

"I am immensely honoured to receive the 2022 Jubilee Medal. The Society has been part of my life in endocrinology since my days as a clinical fellow, and has provided a rich and supportive environment in which to develop my research and interests in scholarly publishing."

NIKKI KIEFFER MEDAL

Dr Sofia Llahana
London, UK

"I am truly honoured and delighted to be the winner of the 2022 Nikki Kieffer Medal and would like to thank the Society for its continuous support to develop and raise the profile of endocrine nursing. It is the greatest of honours to be accepting this Medal, as Nikki was my mentor and dear friend and, without her pioneering work, endocrine nurses would not now be celebrating such great achievements."

Giles Yeo

Giles Yeo

SOCIETY MEDAL

Dr Giles Yeo

STARLING MEDAL

Dr Cynthia Andoniadou
London, UK

"I am deeply honoured to receive this Medal, and extremely grateful to the Society for promoting scientific advances in endocrinology and supporting our community at every career stage. I am indebted to my team and collaborators for their stellar work and support over the years, which led to this recognition."

Philipp E Scherer

Philipp E Scherer

TRANSATLANTIC MEDAL

Professor Philipp E Scherer
Dallas, TX, USA

"Born and raised in Europe, but with most of my professional life spent in the USA, this award carries a very special meaning to me. The Transatlantic Medal reflects and stands for the close cultural and scientific ties that I, and many colleagues in my generation, have between the two continents."

Our Teaching Achievement and Outstanding Clinical Practitioner Awards recognise excellence in teaching and in delivering patient care.

TEACHING ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Punith Kempegowda

Punith Kempegowda

Dr Punith Kempegowda
Birmingham, UK

"I am humbled by this Award and dedicate it to the eternally energetic group of medical students and junior doctors in the SIMBA and CoMICs team, who have helped us break several glass ceilings in teaching, learning, teamwork and leadership over the last couple of years. As a junior doctor in training, an international medical graduate and a person of a coloured background, I’m hoping this national recognition will encourage more early career physicians and researchers from diverse backgrounds to pursue their passion and achieve similar accolades."

OUTSTANDING CLINICAL PRACTITIONER AWARDS

Karim Meeran

Karim Meeran

Professor Karim Meeran
London, UK

"I’m both proud and delighted to have received such a high honour from the Society. The Society has been very supportive in so many ways, and I’m particularly grateful for its support in achieving a reduction in the price of hydrocortisone. I am proud to have been associated with the availability of 2.5mg and 5mg tablets, enabling patients to accurately dose themselves without having to cut tablets in half. These little things that the Society does for patients is one of the reasons that I am so happy to receive this Award."

William Drake

William Drake

Professor William Drake
London, UK

"At SfE BES 2022, I will be presenting some clinical material that ‘goes somewhere’: into a piece of research; into a collective departmental effort to provide high quality care for patients; or simply to illustrate a point of clinical philosophy. In doing so, I hope to be true to the spirit of this Award, which I am thrilled and honoured to receive."
