Collaborative diabetes research

The monthly Diabetes Research Seminar Series was created to share research findings, cultivate collaborative interactions and facilitate diabetes education. Seminar topics cover a wide range of disciplines from basic biomedical research to ongoing clinical studies. Speakers include the Diabetes Institute's own talented faculty members, clinical trainees and students, as well as prominent researchers from beyond the Institute.  Seminars are held the third Friday of every month.
