Congratulations to Dr Charlotte Boughton of the Hovorka Group who has been chosen to give the Royal College of Physicians’ regional Turner-Warwick Lecture, a new award for 2019. Dr Boughton’s title for the RCP’s Update in Medicine – Cambridge on June 28th will be ‘The artificial pancreas for hospitalised patients with diabetes’. Traditionally, lectures at these conferences have been delivered by consultants from within a region and the surrounding area but the new lectures aim to give a platform to trainee physicians and to celebrate the life and achievements of the RPC’s first female president, Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick. Lecturers also receive an invitation to the College’s prestigious Harveian Oration and dinner. Dr Boughton’s work at the Institute of Metabolic Science aims to use the ‘artificial pancreas’ (closed-loop insulin delivery) to improve blood glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes in hospital, where blood glucose levels can be particularly challenging to control.
