Insulin Club - from Basic Science to Clinical Practise 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The ComtecMed Med­ical Con­gresses is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 1st Meet­ing of the Insulin Club – From Basic Sci­ence to Clin­i­cal Prac­tise 2013, held Octo­ber 31Novem­ber 2, 2013 in Berlin, Ger­many at the Leonardo Royal Hotel.

    Meet­ing Theme

    The world-​wide epi­demics of obe­sity and sec­on­dar­ily type 2 dia­betes, are well-​known to all of us. While the increas­ing inci­dences of type 1 dia­betes is per­haps less obvi­ous, l it is indeed also occur­ring in many countries.

    Basic and clin­i­cal research has inten­si­fied to try to under­stand the patho­phys­i­ol­ogy of these dev­as­tat­ing dis­or­ders from genet­ics, to cell biol­ogy and to mouse mod­els repli­cat­ing the dis­or­ders. New med­ica­tions are con­stantly being dis­cov­ered, tested and intro­duced into clin­i­cal practice.

    The “Insulin Club” has been cre­ated to bring together these con­cepts, to trans­late the lat­est research for those of us

    involved in this area, thereby begin­ning a dia­logue between the sci­en­tist and physi­cian, with the real­iza­tion that this inter­ac­tion will ben­e­fit both the pro­fes­sion­als as well as the patients.

    Par­tic­i­pants are pro­vided ample oppor­tu­nity to inter­act with world-​renowned experts in these var­i­ous fields, both researchers, clin­i­cal tri­al­ists and clin­i­cians, with the aim of enabling clin­i­cians to for­mu­late and imple­ment appro­pri­ate ther­a­peu­tic approaches in their daily practices.

    The “Insulin Club” meet­ing will present the lat­est research with an inter­ac­tive plat­form for dis­cus­sions between the atten­dees and the experts.
