  Gregory Forlenza, MD
  Primary Appointment: Assistant Professor of Pediatrics


My research focus is on development, refinement and testing of diabetes technology including insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors and the artificial pancreas. I am interested in using technology to help patients better control their diabetes and reduce the burden of diabetes on children and their families. I am co-Investigator on several JDRF and NIH grants with Dr. David Maahs, Dr. Peter Chase, and Dr. Robert Slover. I am also interested in islet transplantation as a potential cure for type 1 diabetes and was the Co-PI for a project investigating combining islet transplantation with artificial pancreas technology. I am also very passionate about the benefits of diabetes camps and have been volunteering at various camps for over 10 years.
