Developing new clinical trial techniques to create diabetic neuropathy treatments

Dr. Peltier is interested in peripheral neuropathy associated with diabetes and prediabetes, as well as amyloidosis and other diseases. Among her research goals is the desire to identify biomarkers to allow for diagnosis of neuropathy at earlier stages. Her clinical research is using a new technique for skin biopsies that will allow researchers to examine proteins expressed by diabetic humans. This work could lead to the development of new treatment methods.
