Women who develop gestational diabetes during pregnancy are at a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but exactly which women are at the greatest risk and how to best mitigate these risks is currently unclear.

This DPhil will provide an excellent opportunity for a student starting their diabetes research career. The training combines formal learning in research methods with hands-on experience conducting integrated research studies.

This project will advance what we know about the risks of gestational diabetes for developing type 2 diabetes, and develop and conduct early testing of a promising intervention to help reduce risk.
