Big thanks to our guest speaker tonight: Nicole Isaacs, is a Clinical Trials Study Coordinator for the Intestinal Nutrient Sensing Group at The University of Adelaide, and PARC Clinical Research at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Her role involves planning, recruitment and day to day running of clinical trials. Her talk today is about the current diabetic clinical research trails-with the aim to investigate the way sugars enter the blood and how to get better control.

The Intestinal Nutrient Sensing Group, led by A/Prof Richard Young, investigates the intestinal taste system, which detects dietary sugars and low-calorie sweeteners and, in turn, controls how glucose is absorbed and disposed in the body. PARC Clinical Research is a University of Adelaide based research group conducting early phase clinical trials and specialised research into multiple disciplines, led by Professor Guy Ludbrook.
