Robert H. Slover, MD
Primary Appointment: Professor of Pediatrics
Director of Pediatric Diabetes Division
Wagner Family Chair in Childhood Diabetes


I re-joined the faculty of BDC in 2002 and became the Director of Pediatric Diabetes Division in 2010. My specific research work in the past few years has been in the area of insulin pump and sensor use, including the use of sensor augmented pump as compared to multiple daily injections (Star 3 Study) in which I was PI. I am the PI of a study using an ePID closed loop system in newly-diagnosed patients to rapidly achieve tight control in order to extend islet cell life and C-peptide production (Artificial Pancreas Consortium/Trial Net). I am also currently PI for a study using a modified closed loop pump/sensor system to shut off insulin delivery at the point of hypoglycemia during nocturnal induced hypoglycemia, exercise and in the ambulatory home setting. Numerous publications attest to the success of this new technology. I apply this special expertise of diabetes technology use in children to assist in the development of appropriate diabetes modules to educate parents and families in the newest diabetes technology. I am an expert in the collection, review, analysis, and interpretation of continuous glucose monitor data including measurements of variability, analysis of glycemic variability, percent time spent in various glucose ranges, and other glycemic data outcomes.
