My research focuses on monogenic diabetes: ensuring correct diagnosis, the impact of a genetic diagnosis and treatment change. I am particularly interested in effective translation of research findings into clinical care and lead the Genetic Diabetes Nurse (GDN) network: training Diabetes Specialist Nurses in monogenic diabetes who increase awareness of the condition nationally. I was the first nurse to present the Arnold Bloom award lecture at Diabetes UK, 2019 and was named, as one of just four UK nurses, within the Women in Global Health 100+ outstanding nurses in recognition of my work. I am also an NIHR70@70 Senior Nurse Research Leader and bridge the gap between research and clinical care through a range of initiatives.
