This group brings together researchers and clinicians from across the city’s academic centres in order to foster collaboration in research in the area of Diabetes in Pregnancy. The group includes epidemiologists, trialists, health services researchers, translational and basic scientists from the endocrinology and obstetrics fields. The group meets regularly to present completed or ongoing research and to discuss controversial care issues in the area of Diabetes in Pregnancy. In order to take advantage of the large population of women seen by Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the group is working to develop a common database so that future research can utilize the city’s large patient population for collaborative research between sites.  BBDC researchers are actively involved in leadership positions in large, landmark clinical trials investigating the management of diabetes in pregnancy.
