Speaker Biographies

Dr Ahuva Nissim

Dr Nissim is developing a technique to measure the presence of immune system proteins formed against a chemically-modified version of insulin found on the beta cells and in the blood of people living with type 1 diabetes. The technique will also measure how much of the chemically modified insulin is present in the blood. The technique would form the basis of a new test that could be used to help predict, diagnose, stage and treat type 1 diabetes.

Brian Hoadley

Blogger at www.type1bri.com, a marathon runner and type 1 diabetes has been living with me since 2014.
Diagnosis came as quite a shock at the age of 33, but on the whole it has made me a healthier, more confident person today.
I never would have had the inspiration to train for and run the London Marathon if I didn’t have T1D driving me onward.
