Professor McCall received his MD from the Medical College of Wisconsin and his PhD in Neural & Endocrine Regulation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His clinical training was carried out at the Boston University Medical Center where he undertook his residency in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology fellowship and was Chief Medical Resident. Much of his research investigation has focused on how diabetes and hypoglycemia affect the central nervous system. Professor McCall is working with UVA colleagues on a computer-controlled insulin infusion for insulin pumps as an ‘artificial pancreas’ therapy for type 1 diabetes and on the genetics of cardiovascular risk of diabetes. He is also currently funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with his colleague Dr Leon Farhi to study repair of defective glucagon defenses against hypoglycemia.
