Dr. Daniel Drucker, Senior Investigator at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, is the recipient of the world’s most valuable award for diabetes research, the 2014 Manpei Suzuki International Prize. The award, which was announced today by the Manpei Suzuki Diabetes Foundation in Tokyo, recognizes Dr. Drucker’s research in the area of gut hormones and how they control glucose and body weight, which have led to the development of two new classes of therapies for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

“The 2014 Manpei Suzuki International Prize brings tremendous international recognition to the work that we have done for over 25 years, with my trainees and fellow scientists, both at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute and at the University of Toronto,” says Dr. Drucker, who is also Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of Toronto.“We are honoured that our science has helped in the development of new medications for patients with diabetes, and delighted to have our research achievements recognized by our esteemed colleagues in Japan.”
