[Perspectives] Moffat Nyirenda: investigating diabetes and other NCDs in Malawi

Privilege can be habit-forming. Stepping away from it takes willpower, even when it’s what you want to do. In his mid 40s Moffat Nyirenda was enjoying success as a consultant physician and a Medical Research Council clinician scientist at the Queen’s Medical Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh. His research had focused on a possible mechanism for developmental programming. Working with rats Nyirenda had shown that prenatal overexposure to glucocorticoids reduces birthweight and predisposes to diabetes later in life.
