About Chen Gilor

I have been dedicated to improving the quality of life of diabetic cats and dogs and their humans for over 15 years. At the forefront of canine and feline diabetes research, I have published extensively on novel insulin therapies, insulin-alternatives and the pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus. My career goal is to develop diagnostic tests for prediabetes and find treatments that would delay and prevent the need for insulin therapy.
