oa Journal of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes in South Africa - Stephen (FS) Hough
27 August 1947 - 5 December 2014 : obituary
Stephen Hough was one of the finest clinician-scientists to have emanated from South Africa. In his early thirties, and already an established researcher with numerous degrees in medicine and science, he was earmarked by his mentors for advanced training in the USA. From 1979-1981, he worked at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, while on a two-year research fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism. This centre was famed for its work in metabolic bone disease and jump-started Stephen's lifelong passion for this field, and osteoporosis, in particular.
