Professor Daniel Drucker, Banting Medal Award Winner
The American Diabetes Association named University of Toronto Professor Daniel Drucker as recipient of the 2014 Banting Medal for Scientific Achievement Award.
Drucker is only the second Canadian recipient of the award, which is named after the late U of T professor and co-discoverer of insulin, Sir Frederick Banting.
"Daniel Drucker has made huge contributions to diabetes research.
Drucker is known as one of the fathers of incretin therapy, which is used to treat Type-2 diabetes. Incretins are a class of gut-derived hormones that regulate the production of insulin and food ingestion. (Read more on the specifics of Drucker's research)
Long after I'm gone, there will continue to be people at U of T who will be conducting research in incretin biology and diabetes," said Drucker.
Drucker is an Endocrinologist and Professor of Medicine in U of T's Division of Endocrinology, Department of Medicine. He is also a Senior Investigator at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital and is the former Director of U of T's Banting and Best Diabetes Centre. He holds the Canada Research Chair in Regulatory Peptides and the inaugural Banting & Best Diabetes Centre-Novo Nordisk Chair in Incretin Biology.

Receiving this award is external validation and reflects not just my hard work, but really honours the work of my lab and the dedication of our trainees and research associates who have contribute to our success," said Drucker.
"Daniel Drucker's translation work transforms scientific discoveries into new therapies for patients.
"Toronto is a great place to conduct diabetes research," said Drucker.
Drucker will be recognized with this honor at the American Diabetes Association's 74th Scientific Sessions, taking place June 13-17, 2014, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
