Dr Vincent Wong
Dr Vincent Wong is currently the Director of Diabetes and Endocrine Service at Liverpool and Fairfield Hospitals, and is conjoint associate professor at the South Western Sydney Clinical School, University of New South Wales. Although his PhD studies focussed on the effects of insulin on the ischaemic myocardium, in recent years he has developed an interest in gestational diabetes. Over the past 12 years, he has been collecting data on women with diabetes (gestational diabetes and pre-existing diabetes) in pregnancy, and has published widely in this field. Apart from studying the epidemiology of women with diabetes in pregnancy, he also collaborates with Professor David Simmons and Professor Jeff Flack in many aspects of diabetes care through the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Translation Research Unit in South Western Sydney Local Health District.
