Postponed - Louise has a keen interest in ethnic inequalities in health and leads a programme of research focused on understanding ethnic differences in the biological mechanisms by which diabetes develops in African and Caribbean groups.
Her talk will focus on understanding ethnic distinctions in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes in Black British communities. Louise will provide an overview of the burden of type 2 diabetes in Black communities in the UK and then go on to present data from her current research, which explores ethnic differences in insulin sensitivity, beta-cell function and ectopic fat deposition in the liver, muscle and pancreas.
