Professor Naveed Sattar will be presenting the Rank Nutrition Lecture at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference, 14-16 March 2018 in London.

The Rank Nutrition Lecture is funded by the Rank Prize Funds in memory of Professor Harry Keen. Professor Keen was a physician and epidemiologist who did much to shape the modern understanding of diabetes and its treatment. The lecture is specifically focused on nutrition and is open to those working or carrying out research in this area. The Rank Prize Funds were set up in 1972 to foster Lord Rank's interests, which included science in human and animal nutrition, and Professor Keen sat on the Committee for over 22 years.
