Our research focuses on the study of new approaches for the prevention and management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus and its complications. Current projects include:

  1. Participation in the TODAY 2 (Treatment Options for Type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents and Youth follow-up) study, a nationwide observational study following the TODAY cohort to better understand the progression of youth-onset type 2 diabetes including ß-cell function and diabetes-related comorbidities and complications;
  2. Participation in the Preventing Early Renal Loss in Diabetes (PERL) multi-center clinical trial of allopurinol to prevent GFR loss in type 1 diabetes (T1D), with the goal of determining whether lowering uric acid early in the course of kidney disease may be effective in preventing or slowing the decline in renal function in type 1 diabetes;
  3. Investigations of the effectiveness and safety of several new therapeutic agents and devices for the prevention and better treatment of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
