OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A renowned diabetes researcher is the winner of the first Harold Hamm International Prize for Biomedical Research in Diabetes.
Peter Bennett was awarded the $250,000 prize Monday. Bennett worked for years as chief of the National Institutes of Health's diabetes research branch and now serves as scientist emeritus at NIH.
Hamm is the president and CEO of Continental Resources, and he also suffers from Type 2 diabetes.
In his four decades of research, Bennett has identified insulin resistance as a major contributing factor to diabetes. He also introduced the idea that Type 2 diabetes is preventable through diet and exercise.
According to The Journal Record (http://bit.ly/HqcKLN), Bennett says he will put some of the prize money toward diabetes research.
