Philip HomeMA, DPhil, DM, FRCP
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 390 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 health-care.
In Newcastle, he is a Professor of Diabetes Medicine and practiced in diabetes care and disorders of lipid metabolism at the Newcastle Diabetes Center and at the Newcastle Hospitals until the end of 2011. A background in pharmacology and medicine led to an 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 the Federal Drugs Administration (USA) hearings and advised EMA on diabetes medication regulation.
