Dr Simmonds’ research at the University of Lincoln involves investigating genetic predictors of long-term pancreas transplant function in people with type 1 diabetes.

This grant awarded by the society will help to promote endocrinology and diabetes research within the School of Life Sciences Undergraduate programmes and also across the Biomedical Science (MBio) programme.

The Society for Endocrinology will be sponsoring a £100 prize/certificate for the best endocrine/diabetes third year undergraduate project and a £200 prize/certificate for the best endocrine/diabetes MBio project.
