5TH BBDC-JOSLIN-UCPH CONFERENCE 2018

The Banting and Best Diabetes Centre (BBDC), Joslin Diabetes Center (Joslin) and University of Copenhagen (UCPH) are hosting their fifth joint symposium, 26-27 October 2018 at University of Copenhagen in Denmark, with the topic “Prevention of Beta Cell Dysfunction in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes: Role of Inter-organ Communication”. The three institutions  have long been at the heart of global diabetes research, and this meeting seeks to build on that long tradition to bring together prominent researchers but also young researchers from across the globe and to foster greater cross-institutional research in the field of diabetes
