Diabetes research day
The LUDC DPLU Diabetes research day is a yearly event with the aim of increasing the knowledge of diabetes research.
The event is arranged by the Diabetes programme at Lund University (DPLU), a network of young diabetes researchers at Lund University Diabetes Centre (LUDC).
Junior and senior diabetes researchers at LUDC give lectures on current research during the day.
Talks are also given by the winners of the Leif C. Groop award for outstanding diabetes research, the DPLU student grant and the Leif C. Groop young scientist scholarship.
The event is aimed at anyone with an interest in diabetes research.
Register for the meeting over Zoom by sending an email to research administrator Ulrika Blom-Nilsson.
