M.V. Hospital for Diabetes & Diabetes Research Centre - MVHDDRC

Prof. Viswanathan has published more than 250 peer reviewed research papers and articles in various prestigious National and International Journals. These include papers of collaborative research projects with various international research institutes including London University Hospital, U.K., Karolinska Institute, Sweden and other leading research centres in the US and Australia. In addition, Prof. Viswanathan took up a mega research project entitled "Primary Prevention of Diabetes" but unfortunately could not complete the same due to his untimely demise. The research data collected and over 35000 family registries maintained by him, as part of this ongoing project, on further follow up and progression of the project are expected to throw light on inheritance, bio-chemical and clinical course and strategies for prevention of diabetes mellitus.Personal Qualities and Mission in LifeProf. Viswanathan combined erudition, scholarship and talent with sterling character. He had a very fine sense of humour. He had four great ambitions. His first ambition was, "that something had to be done to alleviate the suffering of the diabetic patient... that "every person having diabetes should be helped to live his normal span of life in health." The second ambition was to establish diabetology as a medical discipline in our country. The third ambition was that the basic, clinical and epidemiological research in this field done in India must be of the highest quality and should receive international recognition. The fourth, and in a sense the most important ambition, was that diabetes should be prevented and conquered. In his lifetime he achieved the first three ambitions. As mentioned earlier, he has left behind an unfinished mega project, "Primary Prevention of Diabetes". The scientific staff of the DRC working on the information and research data gathered by him will pursue and endeavour to ensure that this project is brought to fruition.
