Dr Mark Chong searches for the cause of diabetes
Our goal is to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms that cause diabetes. Such knowledge will ultimately facilitate the development of novel approaches to intervene in the disease or to the development of effective therapeutic strategies for diabetes.
While it is possible to manage diabetes, there remains no cure for either type 1 or 2 diabetes. A major reason is that we still only have a limited understanding of how these diseases develop.
Only when we have a precise understanding will it be possible to intervene in the development of the disease and/or cure those living with diabetes. Research into diabetes remains an absolute necessity.
