Type 2 diabetes affects 1.2 million Australian adults and 400 million people globally. But those figures are rising – fast – and there’s an urgent need to develop new approaches to treat people with this disease. Professor Matthew Watt is Head of the Department of Physiology, School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Matthew Watt and his team have stumbled across a key liver protein that reduces blood glucose levels. This discovery could lead to more effective diabetes drugs and a reengineering of this protein would be an improvement of current treatments. 5 Things About... was made possible by the University of Melbourne. Episode recorded: September 10, 2020. Production, audio engineering and editing: Chris Hatzis. Co -production: Dr Andi Horvath. 5 Things About... is licensed under Creative Commons, Copyright 2020, The University of Melbourne.
