Research

Associate Professor Ben Wheeler is a Paediatric Endocrinologist and Paediatrician working for the University of Otago and the Southern District Health Board.

His research focuses on access to and use of new technologies for children and young people affected by diabetes, as well as factors that impact on glycaemic control in diabetes. He also has a research interest in vitamin D and bone health during pregnancy, lactation, and infancy. He has a number of collaborations ongoing in these areas, and usually multiple clinical trials or studies running in these areas at any one time.

He is always looking for new collaborations and for new PhD and other research students to join his team.
