Our research team is dedicated to achieving this goal through research efforts that that span basic science, animal studies, and clinical trials. Our team is internationally recognized for its exceptional contributions to improving our understanding of the natural history of type 1 diabetes, developing strategies to prevent and reverse the disease, the use of artificial pancreas technologies, and the use of novel ways to educate patients and providers in diabetes management.  In addition, our group is internationally known for expertise and development of novel treatments for Prader-Willi Syndrome.
