[Perspectives] Elizabeth Mayer-Davis: leader in adolescent diabetes

“Doing a lot of seemingly different things that are actually connected”, is the way that Elizabeth Mayer-Davis describes working life as Chair of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC, USA. She is currently prioritising research into glycaemic control and weight management in type 1 diabetes; and soon hopes to be working on a trial to investigate how an automated insulin delivery system (the so-called bionic pancreas) will impact on diet and bodyweight. “When it comes to research, I try and see where the gaps in research lie, and work out where I can make a difference”, she says.
