Scientific Committee Update
The DISCOVER team is pleased to welcome Professor Shaukat Sadikot and Professor Jiten Vora as new members of the Scientific Committee.
As former president of the International Diabetes Federation, Professor Shaukat Sadikot is well aware of the need to improve care and outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes. His insights on the global burden of diabetes will be valuable to ensure that we make the most of the DISCOVER study.
“Gathering real world data about treatments and associated outcomes is key to understanding and improving diabetes care. Doing so globally by including low- to middle-income countries is very rare, but this is exactly what the DISCOVER study is about. I look forward to working with the DISCOVER Scientific Committee to make a difference for patients with type 2 diabetes.”
Professor Jiten Vora is Chief Medical Advisor for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases at AstraZeneca and Professor of endocrinology at the University of Liverpool, UK, and brings a wealth of expertise in the clinical management of patients with type 2 diabetes.
“I am delighted to be part of the DISCOVER Scientific Committee and look forward to contributing to this ambitious initiative. This is an exciting time for the study. Follow-up data are becoming available and we are gaining a better understanding of how type 2 diabetes is managed globally. This is crucial to make better treatment decisions”
