Year 2012
Mark Honours 1st Class


Michael is a medical student from the University of Adelaide. In 2012, he undertook an Honours degree with the Royal Adelaide Hospital Intensive Care Unit. Michael's research explored novel methods of blood glucose control in the critically ill, focusing on the incretin hormones GLP-1 and GIP. His study compared the effects of combined GLP-1/GIP and GLP-1 alone on glycaemia in a randomised controlled trial. His first foray into the world of research was both enlightening and enjoyable. Special thanks must go to his supervisors, who fostered a fantastic learning environment, whilst still affording Mahesh and Michael time to make the most of student life. Carn the Power.
