Dr. Wadwa joined the BDC staff in August of 2003 and is developing his research in  the area of complications of type 1 diabetes. In this effort, he is working with Dr. Rewers on the Coronary Artery Calcification in Type 1 Diabetes Study (CACTI). In this study, Dr. Wadwa is working on ways to identify persons with type 1 diabetes who are at increased risk for developing coronary artery disease before they develop heart disease.
