Though there is strong evidence to show that individuals with Type 1 diabetes are at risk of various metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, there is limited evidence to show these associations in adolescent and young adult females. The Young Female Health Initiative (YFHI) Diabetes Study is a comprehensive female health study conducted on 16-25 year old females with Type 1 Diabetes.
Students will have the opportunity to investigate the prevalence of metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors and associated behavioural and lifestyle factors in a young female cohort with type 1 diabetes. Findings from this study will be able to shed light on the health profiles of young females with diabetes and provide evidence for targeted intervention strategies for females in this age group. This project would suit a student interested in endocrinology and cardiovascular health. Suitable for Honours, MDRP, MBiomedSc, or Masters by Research studies.
This research project is available to Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
