While Breakthrough T1D remains laser focused on curing T1D,  we are simultaneously driving advances to improve the lives of those living with T1D today. Hear Dr. Anastasia Albanese-O’Neill address current Breakthrough T1D research that will contribute to advanced diabetes technologies, reduced chronic complications, and improved quality of life.


Anastasia Albanese-O’Neill, Ph.D., APRN, CDCES, has been involved in diabetes care, education, advocacy, and research since 2008, and has dedicated her career to improving the lives of people with diabetes. At Breakthrough T1D, she serves as AVP, T1D Education and Clinical Implementation, with a focus on accelerating progress toward a cure for T1D. Anastasia spent 14 years in academic medicine and directed the Pediatric Diabetes Clinic and Diabetes Education Program at the University of Florida. As a professor in medicine and nursing, she published research findings on diabetes education, diabetes technologies, and quality improvement in journals including The Lancet, Diabetes Care, and Pediatric Diabetes. She was recently chosen by ADCES as the 2023 Diabetes Care and Education Specialist of the Year. Anastasia plans to retire when a cure for T1D is discovered, but not a moment earlier.
