An educational model for the integration of genetics into diabetes care

The team at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, led by Prof. Andrew Hattersley, Dr Maggie Shepherd and Prof Sian Ellard have received funding from the Department of Health for a project exploring ways of increasing the integration of molecular genetic testing into diabetes care.
