Aim of the group


Our aim is to be ambassadors for healthier living and utilise the full capacity within King’s Health Partners to promote healthier nutrition and lifestyles in the local population and the local health workforce. Diabetes and metabolic disease has been identified as one of the major threats to economic growth and development on a global level according to the World Economic Forum. We are committed to take a lead in addressing this challenge through cutting edge innovation, translational research and comprehensive patient management from prevention to tertiary care. With existing programmes in metabolic neuroimaging, mental health, obesity management and in beta cell physiology, growth and replacement - including islet transplantation – our translational programme will range from developing new treatments to improve weight and diabetes control, through preservation of insulin secretion in type 2 diabetes, to new surgical approaches to manage extreme obesity.
