A.              Personal Statement
 I have the expertise, leadership, and motivation necessary to successfully carry out the proposed work. I have a
long and broad background in pediatric endocrinology and specifically in Type 1 diabetes with specific expertise and
training in key research areas needed for this study. My specific research work in the past few years has been in
the area of insulin pump and sensor use, including the use of sensor augmented pump as compared to multiple
daily injections (Star 3 Study) in which I was PI. I am currently PI of a study using a ePID closed loop system in
newly-diagnosed patients to rapidly achieve tight control in order to extend islet cell life and C-peptide production
(Artificial Pancreas Consortium/Trial Net). I am also currently PI for a study using a modified closed loop
pump/sensor system to shut off insulin delivery at the point of hypoglycemia during exercise. I have successfully
administered these and other projects ( e.g. staffing, research protection, budget), collaborated with other
researchers, and have participated in or authored several abstracts, posters, and peer-reviewed publications from
these projects. As a result of these previous experiences, I am aware of the importance of frequent communication
among project members and of constructing a realistic research plan, timeline, and budget. In summary, I have
demonstrated a record of successful research in an area of high relevance to this current project.
