Timothy Bailey, MD, FACP, FACE, ECNU was born in New York City. Having lost an uncle from the ravages of type 1 diabetes while a teen, he became interested in medicine. At Mount Sinai, he was mentored by Elliot Rayfield, MD, FACE and chose to train in Endocrinology & Metabolism with Harold Lebovitz, MD, FACE.
In 1990, Dr. Bailey moved to Escondido, California, and began work at Advanced Metabolic Care + Research in Escondido, CA. In 1994, he founded MetaMedix Inc., a company that developed diabetes and nutrition management software. He developed a quality system to support the first submission to the FDA for a web-based diabetes care system. Dr. Bailey led the company to profitability and a successful acquisition by iMetrikus, Inc., (a spinoff of Chiron Corporation) in August of 2000. He is the director of AMCR Institute and has served as principal investigator on phase 1 to 4 clinical trials. Dr. Bailey has extensive experience in medical device trials, including first-in-human and pivotal trials, and is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of California at San Diego, where he is active in the education of endocrinology fellows.
Joining AACE was the most beneficial of all of his professional society memberships. In 2000, Dr. Bailey was elected to the Board of the California Chapter of AACE where he has served as Treasurer, Secretary, and Webmaster. At a national level, he chaired the EMR and IT committee and presently chairs the Research Committee. Dr. Bailey’s current focus is on providing training and tools to all members that wish to become more involved with clinical research in the private practice setting.
