Quote from Prof O’Neal : We are privileged to be part of the ACADI family.
The Centre has provided substantial funding for three studies led by the diabetes technology team at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne.
These relate to glucose control in kidney disease, empowering the patient with type 1 diabetes using technology and the evaluation of a novel ketone sensor.
