2010 Winner of the Manpei Suzuki International Prize for Diabetes Research
Carl Eric Mogensen, MD
Professor of Medicine
Medical Department M (Diabetes &Endocrinology)
Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus (Denmark)
The Selection Committee highly recognized his extensive and most valuable contributions over many years in the field of diabetic nephropathy. His seminal discovery of microalbuminuria led to a new understanding of diabetic nephropathy. Moreover, he demonstrated clearly that microalbuminuria predicts a progression of the disease to diabetic nephropathy and a higher mortality rate in this group of patients, and by the stringent control of glucose and blood pressure, the prognosis of these patients is markedly improved.
Prof. Carl E. Mogensen was therefore selected a Prize winner of 2010.
