The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute presents its next seminar on Diabetes Technology featuring Drs. Bruce Buckingham, Rayhan A. Lal, and H. Tom Soh.

Bruce Buckingham, MD, Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology & Diabetes), Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital. Dr. Bruce Buckingham is a Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology & Diabetes) at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. His major interest is in type 1 diabetes mellitus, continuous glucose sensor, and the development of an artificial pancreas. Other research interests include using continuous glucose monitoring and algorithms to control blood glucose levels in intensive care units.

Rayhan A. Lal, MD, Postdoctoral Medical Fellow in Endocrinology & Metabolism; Fellow in Pediatrics (Endocrinology & Diabetes). Dr. Rayhan A. Lal has been living with diabetes for several decades and studied electrical engineering and computer science at U.C. Berkeley.  During his work in engineering his two younger sisters developed type 1 diabetes and he decided to become an adult and pediatric endocrinologist to take care of all his brothers and sisters with diabetes. He currently works with Dr. Bruce Buckingham on new diabetes technology.

H. Tom Soh, MS, PhD, Professor of Radiology, of Electrical Engineering, and, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering. Dr. H.
