I am a member of the Institute of Health Sciences Diabetes and Obesity Research Network. My research interests in this area include:

  • Clinical Research in Diabetic Foot: The Manchester DIALEX (Diabetes Lower Extremity Research Group) has been actively researching clinical aspects of diabetic foot disease over the last 20 years. Over 200 peer reviewed research articles have been published as a result of research in this group.
  • Clinical Aspects of Diabetic Somatic Peripheral Neuropathy: Again the DIALEX Research Group has been active in researching clinical aspects of the pathogenesis and treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
  • Clinical Research in Diabetic Nephropathy: In collaboration with Professor Gokal and more recently Dr Anand Vardhan, the Group has been active in researching clinical aspects of the management of diabetic nephropathy at all stages.
  • Grants: Prof Boulton holds grants from a number of organisations including Diabetes UK and the National Institutes of Health, USA.
