Philip Home

Professor of Diabetes Medicine at the Newcastle University

Professor Philip Home trained in medicine at Oxford University and Guy's Hospital, coming under the influence of Harry Keen, and thus gravitating into diabetes research. Continuing this research career in Newcastle upon Tyne, initially under the guidance of George Alberti, he has published over 460 papers, books and reviews on aspects of diabetes, from basic studies on metabolism to RCTs of new therapies, and aspects of the organization and delivery of diabetes healthcare.

In Newcastle he is Professor of Diabetes Medicine, and he practiced in diabetes care and disorders of lipid metabolism at the Newcastle Diabetes Centre and at the Newcastle Hospitals until the end of 2011.

A background in pharmacology and medicine led to his appointment to the external panel of the Committee of Safety of Medicines (UK) and later the MHRA, and subsequently to membership/Vice Chairman of the Appraisal Committee of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (UK) (2000-2011). He has given evidence at Federal Drugs Administration (USA) hearings and advised EMA on diabetes medication regulation.
