Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Clinical translational research: improved detection techniques for diagnostic and predictive biomarkers of type 1 diabetes, and characterization of novel biomarker trends in the at-risk population. Our group is additionally investigating potential dietary and environmental triggers of type 1 diabetes.

Clinical informatics: optimization of the electronic medical record to support comprehensive and efficient multi-disciplinary approaches to outpatient and inpatient pediatric diabetes care and teaching. We are working toward a common platform for real-time review of patient and device data, and shared data/learning among institutions connected by a common EMR, to improve the quality and efficiency of pediatric diabetes care.
