Our Health in Our Hands: Diabetes Research Update

14 August 2019

Our Health in Our Hands (OHIOH) is establishing a co-design research approach, in which researchers from all themes of the overall project (genomics and bioinformatics, biomarker discovery and monitoring devices, big data, and health experience) will work together with patients, families and carers, clinicians and health services, to transform the delivery of diabetes-related health care which will include components for diabetes prevention, early diagnosis and improved management.

The initial focus will be on type 1 diabetes and a type 1 diabetes research cohort is about to be recruited in the ACT.  As the project develops, the research program will expand to include more research into gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
