Diabetes Research Symposium is a two-day symposium arranged by the Department of Health Science & Technology, Aalborg University and Steno Diabetes Center North Denmark. The symposium is directed to PhD students (2 ECTS) and clinicians as well as people working with or having an interest in diabetes research. The first day is focused on current research in five central fields of diabetes:

  1. The diabetes foot,
  2. diabetes and eye diseases,
  3. antidiabetic treatments,
  4. diabetes technologies and
  5. gastroenterology in diabetes.

The second day is focused on diabetes research applied to clinical practice. From the symposium you will gain insight in current research trends and methodology and their association to clinical practice.

We look forward to seeing you!
