Diabetes Research Steering Group: Type 2 treatments and prevention

The Type 2 Treatments and Prevention group aims to further research into preventing and treating type 2 diabetes. This group 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.

If you would like to share your views with the group on where research into prevention, targets and therapies for type 2 diabetes should be focused, please get in touch:



Chair: Dr Rob Andrews, University of Exeter

Dr Rob Andrews is recognised internationally for his research into the role that diet and exercise can play in preventing type 2 diabetes.
