Professor Melanie Davies (right) from the

University of Leicester has been awarded

a CBE in the New Year's Honours List for

services to diabetes research. Professor

Davies was appointed in 1996 as a

consultant at Leicester Royal Infirmary

and recruited her first research nurse

in 1998. With increasing success the

team grew and Professor Davies took

up an appointment with the University

of Leicester as Professor of Diabetes

Medicine in 2007. Sustained growth

over several years saw relocation to the

Leicester General Hospital site, bringing

together a number of colleagues into one

large and increasingly successful unit.

Working alongside Professor Kamlesh

Khunti, Professor Davies has built up the

Leicester Diabetes Centre team with more

than 140 people currently carrying out

over 40 studies designed to improve the

lives of people with diabetes.

Professor Davies said on receiving the

award, "This award means a lot because

it is recognition for a significant amount

of hard work and determination in turning

a vision into reality and I would like to

acknowledge the great team with which

I am fortunate to work. Research is about

looking at gaps in clinical knowledge and

solving these problems by applying new

methods, then testing and measuring

what really makes a difference, rather than

continuing to do things the same way."
