With increasing rates of diabetes in Australia, Professor Chris Nolan is trying to understand why the cells that secrete insulin malfunction and how they are affected by environmental stresses. Hints so far are these cells are hyper responsive to the stresses of poor lifestyle. 

Professor Nolan would like to see prevention of the disease in the first place, but until that is achieved would like to see better treatments and prevention of additional complications from diabetes for his patients through his research.

He shared his research with us.
