For Issue 3 of Diabetic Hypoglycemia we interviewed Professor Robert Sherwin, CNH Long Professor of Medicine and Director of the Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine. Professor Sherwin is one of the foremost researchers on the impact of hypoglycemia and insulin on brain function, and has carried out extensive work on brain glucose sensing mechanisms that mediate the activation of counterregulatory responses. Graduating from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1967, Professor Sherwin went on to a residency at the Mount Sinai Hospital, New York and fellowship training in metabolism and endocrinology at the National Institutes of Health and at Yale, before joining the Yale faculty in 1974. Among his career awards are the American Diabetes Association’s Banting Medal for lifetime scientific achievement, the Novartis Award in diabetes research and two MERIT Awards from the National Institutes of Health; he has published more than 300 articles in peer-reviewer journals and is editor of one of the major medical textbooks on diabetes, Ellenberg & Rifkin's Diabetes Mellitus.
