Research Tuesdays goes virtual

April event

Taking on type 2

Although COVID-19 dominates global headlines, here in Australia type 2 diabetes (T2D) remains a far more prevalent threat. Affecting nearly 1 million of us, it’s directly associated with around 9,500 deaths per annum.

We know the vast majority of these lives are lost are due to disproportionately high rates of related vascular complications, such as heart attacks, peripheral artery disease and chronic-wound infections. But how and why T2D triggers these complications so frequently has remained a mystery.

Progress, however, is being made. Ongoing research at the University of Adelaide is shining new light on this critical issue and raising hopes for innovative therapy development. In this engaging presentation, we’ll bring you right up to speed.

The presenter

Ms Khalia Primer is a University of Adelaide PhD candidate based at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. Her doctoral research focuses on diabetic vascular complications. Ms Primer is also Convenor of the South Australian branch of the Australian Society for Medical Research.
