About Esko’s research

Professor Esko Wiltshire is a General Paediatrician and Paediatric Endocrinologist and in his clinical role helps manage children with a wide range of conditions, particularly diabetes and growth problems. Esko’s research has particularly focussed on the complications of diabetes in children, both acute and chronic, including treatment for hypoglycaemia and more recently research involving emerging diabetes technology. As type 1 diabetes becomes significantly more common and as we approach the centenary of the discovery of insulin, these issues and advances are becoming even more important, particularly how they will be utilised in an equitable manner.

Esko is immediate past-president of the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group and chair of the International Consortium of Paediatric Endocrinology Societies and has had leadership roles in variety of Diabetes and Endocrinology related organisations.
