This week’s research news features Dr. Audrey Odom John and her discovery of six breath compounds that could lead to a COVID breathalyzer for kids.

You are invited to take part in a voluntary research trial because you have type 2 diabetes and are between the ages of 10 and 17 years.

The Roizen Lab aims to understand non-calciometabolic vitamin D effects and to use this understanding to design new therapies for common diseases like sarcopenia and obesity.

The goal of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of Canagliflozin (which is experimental) in children and adolescents ages 10 to 18 years old with Type 2 diabetes and poor control (i.e., an HbA1c of 6.5% to 10.5%)

Dr. Willi's research focuses on therapeutics for type 1 and type 2 diabetes and he has performed a number of physiologic studies in the etiology and characterization of diabetes in children. His current studies include trials on the delay of progression of type 1 diabetes and a multicenter trial to examine the optimal therapeutics for type 2 diabetes in children.

The principal goal of Dr. Simmons' research program is to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms that link an aberrant intrauterine milieu to the later development of diseases in adulthood. She has made many seminal contributions to the understanding of the role that epigenetic modifications play in developmental programming of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
