Dr. Taylor, Professor of Medicine and Metabolism at Newcastle University in the U.K. and Honorary Consultant at Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust, will give the Friday morning plenary presentation on the topic, “T2D Remission as a Therapeutic Goal,” discussing the goal of helping type 2 diabetes patients reach healthy blood sugar levels without the need for medication.
Dr. Taylor has been conducting research on type 2 diabetes since 1978 and has explored a wide range of methods to better understand and treat the condition. His work focuses on topics including metabolic research in diabetes, the application of magnetic resonance spectroscopy to clinical medicine, and clinical outcome research in diabetic pregnancy.
