Dr. Vileikyte is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom and visiting Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She has spent the past 20 years doing clinical research on diabetic complications. Over the past decade her main research interests have been the psychological and behavioral aspects of diabetic foot complications, with a focus on the psychological factors that influence diabetic foot ulcer prevention and healing, as well as the impact of diabetic foot complications on patients’ physical and mental functioning and quality of life. Dr. Vileikyte developed the first neuropathy-specific quality-of-life scale, which has been used in several clinical trials of new medications for painful diabetic neuropathy. In addition, Dr. Vileikyte co-authored the book Painful Diabetic Neuropathy in Clinical Practice with Dr. Andrew J.M. Boulton. She is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the effects of stress on wound healing in neuropathy-related diabetic foot ulcers, including its physiological effects and its impact on adherence behavior.
