He returned to Sydney in 2007 to take up Staff Specialist and Clinical Research Fellow appointments. Currently, he heads the Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at St Vincent’s Hospital and the Clinical Diabetes, Appetite and Metabolism laboratory at the Garvan Institute. He is the Clinical Associate Dean of the St Vincent’s Clinical School, UNSW, Sydney. His research focuses on elucidating the genomic, gut microbiomic and serum metabolomic signatures of the diverse phenotypes of prediabetes and diabetes and on establishing the predictors of glycemic response to insulin-sensitizing modalities in individuals at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Professor Greenfield is Editor-in-Chief (Obesity/Metabolism) of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Case Reports and is on the editorial board of Clinical Obesity.
