2013 Type 1 Diabetes Symposium

On Monday, May 6, 2013, Joslin will host the inaugural Joslin Symposium on the campus of Harvard Medical School. The topic will be Type 1 diabetes, with a focus on defining scientific and therapeutic opportunities and challenges. The one-day symposium will cover a wide range of areas of importance for improving and developing Type 1 therapies, including Type 1 immunology, beta cell replenishment, closed-loop insulin pumps, and clinical trials. A stellar group of eight internationally-known scientific leaders have agreed to speak, and ample time will be allotted for questions, discussion, and scientific interactions. We anticipate that this will be an exciting day for the Harvard, Boston, and international Type 1 diabetes research communities.
