Stephanie Amiel is Emeritus Professor of Diabetes Research at King's College London and honorary consultant physician at King's College Hospital. Her research focusses on mechanisms of hypoglycaemia awareness in insulin therapy, as well as the central control of metabolism and the impact of ethnicity on metabolism. She was instrumental in developing the UK's DAFNE programme and led services for type 1 diabetes at King's, including all parts of the management pathway from education through technology to human islet transplantation. With King's diabetes educators and psychologists, she developed a novel adjunctive therapy for hypoglycaemia avoidance for people experiencing problematic hypoglycaemia despite otherwise optimised self-management. Current projects include DAFNEplus; the EUI-IMI HypoRESOLVE programme and a recently-started NIH RCT of hybrid closed loop for impaired hypoglycaemia awareness. She has published widely; edited Diabetic Medicine for Diabetes UK and Diabetes Voice for IDF; chaired the 2015 NICE guideline development group for the current adult type 1 guideline and serves as a mentor on the EFSD mentorship programme.
