Dr Ian Godsland is Wynn Reader in Human Metabolism at Imperial College London. He is undertaking long-term investigations into metabolic risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the context of a range of studies, in particular a cohort study in which intensive metabolic investigations were carried out for 29 years. His main focus is on the measurement and definition of insulin resistance, insulin secretion and the metabolic syndrome, and their roles in type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. He also has an extensive background in metabolic risk factor changes associated with use of gonadal steroids,especially oral contraceptive and postmenopausal hormone replacement therapies.
