Dr. Slover rejoined the faculty of BDC in 2002 and became the Director of Pediatric Diabetes Division in 2010. His research work focuses in the area of insulin pump and sensor use, the use of sensor-augmented pump therapy, and the development of closed loop (artificial pancreas) systems. He is the PI of several studies at the BDC including the pivotal ASPIRE study, and the pre-pivotal and pivotal trials of hybrid closed loop systems in children from as young as age 8. This work has progressed through intensive hospital trials, and closely monitored off-site studies, to home use with extended periods of direct observation in group settings. Numerous publications attest to the success of this new technology. Dr. Slover uses his special expertise of diabetes technology use in children to assist in the development of appropriate diabetes modules to educate parents and families in the newest diabetes technology. He is an expert in the collection, review, analysis, and interpretation of continuous glucose monitor data including measurements of variability, analysis of glycemic variability, percent time spent in various glucose ranges, and other glycemic data outcomes. As the PI of many past and present studies, he has authored over 250 peer-reviewed publications.
