Research groups


The remit of the Diabetes Research Group is to improve outcomes in diabetes care from the bench through the bedside to the community.

The Diabetes Research Group has activity at two sites:

The Diabetes Research Group at the Guy’s Campus houses basic science research programmes in the molecular cell biology of islet function; G-protein couple receptors as therapeutic targets in diabetes; mitochondrial (dys) function in diabetes; animal models of diabetes and islet transplantation; metabolic adaptations to pregnancy; gut-brain-islet interactions; and islet immunology and immune-based therapies, including clinical trials.

The Diabetes Research Group at the Denmark Hill Campus houses (i) the Experimental Medicine group which investigates human metabolism in vivo and the application of technology  to improve therapies  for hypoglycaemic unawareness and for obesity-related insulin resistance and diabetes; (ii) The Diabetes and Mental Health Programme  which investigates the impact of mental health on the development and outcomes of diabetes; (iii) The Human Islet Isolation Unit which provides human islets for the National and King’s Islet Transplantation programmes and for numerous research projects both within and outside King’s College London.
