Dr Julian Paul Hamilton-Shield MB,ChB, MD(Bristol), MRCP, FRCPCH
Senior Lecturer, University of Bristol.
Julian Shield qualified in 1985 and undertook his post-graduate training in Bristol and London. His early research mainly centred on Type 1 diabetes and rare forms of inherited diabetes. The epidemic of childhood obesity in the UK prompted a re-alignment of research interests to include the prevention and treatment of Type 2 diabetes and the "Metabolic Syndrome" in childhood. His clinical practice in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism is based in one of the few, purpose built children’s hospitals in the United Kingdom. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in child health at the University of Bristol.
