Teresa Quattrin, M.D., Pediatrician-in-Chief, Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo, and Professor of Pediatrics, Chair, Department of Pediatrics, University of New York at Buffalo, is a leading researcher for a $600,000 grant awarded by the American Diabetes Association to further a pilot study conducted that found that a drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes could also help Type 1 diabetics.

If the initial findings on liraglutide are confirmed in the larger study, it could mean the first significant new treatment for Type 1 diabetes since insulin’s discovery in the 1920s.
