Meet diabetes researcher Associate Professor John Wentworth. John receives funding from the Diabetes Australia Research Program (DARP) to develop an in-home islet autoantibody test for detecting type 1 diabetes. Similar to COVID-19 rapid antigen tests, this could mean a new way to identify type 1 diabetes in children and young adults who are at high risk quickly, easily, and at a lower cost.

John works with the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research and collaborates with Melbourne Health/the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Lions Diabetes Foundation and JDRF.

A great episode for anyone who is wondering what’s new in the world of diabetes research
