CSG 3 aims to further research into preventing and treating Type 2 diabetes. This CSG will look at the prevention of Type 2 diabetes, including through lifestyle modification and behaviour change at the individual and population level.

It will consider socioeconomic factors, the environment, and whole system influences on behaviour. The group will also cover drug targets and therapies for people with Type 2 diabetes.
