Brief description This research will develop novel insulins that possess improved stability and activity for diabetic patients. The improved pharmacological actions of the modified insulins offer increased treatment options for patients eg. enabling less frequent or invasive medication. Our cross-disciplinary team will (i) design and synthesise insulin derivatives, (ii) explore the activity of the modified insulins by biophysical activity profiles in vitro, (iii) evaluate the in vivo stability and clinical effects.
