Research Activities

Our pediatric endocrinology and diabetes faculty are nationally and internationally acknowledged for their research work. Highlights include innovative programs to expand the use of telemedicine and remote patient monitoring, and programs to optimize diabetes care by improving support for the family unit. Research from our faculty has also guided the development of international guidelines for treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes.

Academic Programs

Training the next generation of physicians to become compassionate providers of expert care is an important part of our mission. Faculty members are involved in medical student teaching and small group case-based learning, training of general pediatricians during residency, and training of future pediatric endocrinologists in our pediatric endocrinology fellowship. We also provide ongoing education for hospital nurses to ensure optimal inpatient care of children with diabetes.
