Professor Harry Keen (1925-2013)

It is with much sadness and regret that the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has received the news of the passing of Professor Harry Keen, one of IDF’s Honorary Presidents. 

During his highly distinguished career, Professor Keen led or was associated with many of the most important research and clinical advances in diabetes and inspired a generation of today’s leading diabetologists who worked with him. He was Professor Emeritus at Guy’s Hospital Campus, King’s College London School of Medicine.

He will be fondly remembered for his outstanding work as a champion for diabetes.
