Personal profile

Biography

Dr Marino’s research program has fundamentally shifted our understanding of the role diet, gut microbiota, and the immune system in the development of T1D, spurring new research directions worldwide and bringing diet-based therapeutic options one step closer by advancing this basic research to clinical trials. Eliana has secure >$2 million research funding including the prestigious Type 1 Millennium Award from the Diabetes Australia Research Trust and the USA Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation postdoctoral (JDRF) fellowship. Dr Marino has disseminated her work to the community and public through forums to general practitioners, clinicians, philanthropic partners, industry and educational events, such as the Melbourne Museum exhibition the “Gut Feelings”
