Eleanor M. Scott
Eleanor M. Scott, B.M. B.S., trained in medicine in Nottingham, qualifying in 1992. She was awarded a B.Med.Sci. degree in 1990 for work examining the relationship of macrophages and interleukin secretion to inflammatory bowel disease. She entered clinical training in the UK obtaining MRCP in 1995 and then entered specialty training in diabetes and endocrinology, being accredited with CCST in 2001. She was awarded an M.D. degree in 2000 for her work "Changes in peripheral sympathetic discharge and vascular resistance during postprandial insulinaemia" utilising the technique of microneurography to assess sympathetic nerve activity. She became Senior Lecturer in Medicine at the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, in 2003 working within the Division of Cardiovascular and Diabetes Research. Having a longstanding awareness of the importance of circadian variation in sympathetic nerve activity, coagulation, carbohydrate metabolism, and vascular function, the main thrust of her research now is to investigate the role of the molecular clock and circadian/diurnal rhythm disruption in the development of insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. She presents regularly at scientific meetings and given invited lectures nationally and internationally on this subject. Clinically she specializes in gynae-endocrinology and the preconception and antenatal management of women with diabetes.
