Activities for young diabetes researchers

The DPLU network organises a wide range of activities. The overarching goal is to bring early career researchers together so they can meet, network, and exchange knowledge.

The early career researchers’ day takes place during the fall. Join this day for talks and an after-work event.

The activities bring early career researchers at LUDC together to discuss science and exchange ideas in an informal setting. DPLU arranges four main activities a year.

In the spring, you can participate in the diabetes research day, the DPLU half-day seminar, and the DPLU methodology day. In the fall, you are welcome to take part in the DPLU young researchers’ day. Now and then, the DPLU network also organises meetings where the two mentors at LUDC attend. 

DPLU is always interested in extending the network. If you are interested in joining DPLU and would like to contribute to our activities, please contact Sabrina Ruhrmann or Joao Vieira. 

All activities are announced in the weekly DPLU newsletter and via the DPLU email list. 

Email research administrator Ulrika Blom-Nilsson at ulrika [dot] blom-nilsson [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se if you would like to be on the emailing list for DPLU postdoctoral fellows and PhD students at LUDC.
