Mac researcher honoured for work on obesity, diabetes

It has been a year filled with honours and awards for McMaster University researcher Gregory Steinberg.

09 November 2017

This week Steinberg, a professor of medicine of McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, received the Diabetes Canada/Canadian Institutes of Health Research – Institute of Nutrition Metabolism and Diabetes Young Scientist Award. The award recognizes outstanding research conducted in Canada by scientists under the age of 45 in the field of diabetes.

The recognition comes on the heels of the Endocrine Society’s 2018 Laureate Awards announcement in September, at which time Steinberg was named the recipient of the Richard E. Weitzman Outstanding Early Career Investigator Award. This annual award recognizes an exceptionally promising young clinical or basic investigator in the field of endocrinology. 

“It’s been a tremendous honour for me to receive these national and international awards that are a reflection of the great fortune I have had in working with tremendous mentors, collaborators and trainees over my scientific career,” said Steinberg. “Without their vital contributions, none of these accolades would be possible.”
