Inaugural Professorial Lecture – Professor Jeremy Krebs 

Please join us for this Inaugural Professorial Lecture by Professor Jeremy Krebs of the Department of Medicine, University of Otago, Wellington. 

About Jeremy's research

Jeremy is an endocrinologist with a particular interest in diabetes and obesity. His research spans the gap between molecular and basic science and public health translation, with a very clinical focus. Supporting and developing junior researchers across multidisciplinary fields including medicine, nursing, nutrition and basic science is important to him. Having completed his doctorate in Human Nutrition Research in Cambridge, UK, his research interests mainly concentrate on the nutritional approaches to addressing obesity and the close link with type 2 diabetes.

Using a scientific approach to provide evidence to underpin personal and public health messages, where there is often populist and unsubstantiated information, is a focus; for example, the place for low carbohydrate or high protein diets in weight and diabetes management, and current work in the area of probiotics.

He has also developed research in translation and implementation of existing clinical trial evidence into “real world” clinical practice.
