Professor Carel Le Roux

David Cummings

Endocrinologist, Dublin, Ireland

Le Roux serves as the head of pathology at the University College Dublin in Ireland. He graduated from medical school in Pretoria, South Africa, where he completed his specialist training in metabolic medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Hospitals and Hammersmith Hospitals. He completed his PhD at Imperial College London and was later promoted to Reader. He received a Clinician Scientist Award from the UK National Institute of Health Research and a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellowship for his work on how the gut communicates with the brain.

“Type 2 diabetes remains one of the most challenging chronic diseases people struggle with. Novel and scalable treatments that can have a positive impact on people’s lives are urgently needed,” said Le Roux. “EndoBarrier has broken the mold of how we used to think about novel treatments for diabetes.”
