Professor Parth Narendran
Elected committee member Chair of Academic Sub Committee
Parth’s clinical interests focus on type 1 diabetes and he supports the type 1 services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. These include a structured education programme called Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE), the adolescent transition, insulin pump, glucose sensing and islet/pancreas transplant services. Supporting patients to exercise is a core interest of the service.
Parth’s research interests also focus on type 1 diabetes. He has a long-standing interest in preserving the function of insulin producing pancreatic beta cells in type 1 diabetes. More recently he has been involved programmes for detecting people at risk of getting type 1 diabetes so that they can be offered clinical trials for prevention of this condition.
