Joslin International Symposium on Diabetes

Thank you to all who attended the event! It was a wonderful mix of cutting-edge scientific presentations, shared memories of working in the Kahn lab, and reunion with old friends and colleagues.

In addition, we regret the omission of the bio and abstract of Dr. Gökhan Hotamisligil in the program guide. A pdf of the updated program guide can be found and downloaded here.




We hope you enjoy the photos, taken by I-Hsien Wu. Visit the Joslin Diabetes Center Flickr page to see more photos from the Symposium.
