Dr Martin Whyte
I trained in medicine at King's College Hospital, qualifying in 1998. During my postgraduate medical training I undertook a PhD at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospital (University of London) examining the metabolic effects of insulin in critical illness. I then competed my specialist training (CCT) in Diabetes & Endocrinology and General Medicine in 2010. Since 2012 I have combined my NHS Consultant work with that of a Clinical Senior Lecturer at The University of Surrey.
Areas of specialism
Type 2 diabetes mellitus;
University roles and responsibilities
- Faculty MD co-ordinator
- Department PGR co-ordinator
In the media
I am interested in the aetiology and consequence of insulin resistance and its effect on cardiovascular disease. This manifests as fatty liver and dyslipidaemia. In addition, how should we approach glycaemic normalisation in subpopulations of Type 2 diabetes?
The methodologies that I use are:
Stable isotope techniques (to explore intermediary metabolism).
- Metabolic consequences of therapies for type 2 diabetes, obesity and bariatric surgery
- Effect of dietary and exercise regimes on hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity
Big data (primary care datasets):
- Cardiovascular sequealae of type 2 diabetes
I have supervised one PhD and two MD students to thesis completion and am currently principal supervisor for five MD students
I am the Module organiser for 'Obesity, Diabetes & Eating disorders' (BMSM004) which forms part of the MSc in Nutritional Medicine
I lecture on diabetes & obesity to the following undergraduate courses:
Nutrition research methodology BMS3057
Physician Associate PASM002
Pathology of the endocrine system, nervous system and organs of special sense VMS2007
I am an external lecturer and examiner for the Endocrinology: Clinical & Molecular Intercalated BSc at King's College London
