Chair: Dr Carlo Acerini, University of Cambridge

Dr Acerini’s research focusses on the development of new therapeutic approaches to the management of Type 1 diabetes in childhood and adolescence. This includes work on the development of open and affordable closed loop insulin delivery (Artificial Pancreas) systems and exploration of the use of adjunctive therapies for the improvement of insulin sensitivity and the avoidance of complications in Type 1 diabetes.
