6th Helmholtz Diabetes Conference
The 6th Helmholtz Diabetes Conference will take place from September 26 to 28 2018 at Palais Lenbach Munich.
The meeting brings together international top leaders in the field of diabetes to enable the identification of, and potential solutions to, the preeminent scientific challenges facing the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. Moreover the conference will feature two award presentations: the Helmholtz Diabetes Lecture, in recognition of the lifetime achievements of a senior leader in the field, and the Helmholtz Young Investigator in Diabetes Award (HeIDi), in recognition of a rising star.
Every year, this conference series integrates research reports on essential scientific questions in urgent need of a breakthrough. In 2018, we will focus on the role of the brain in the control of metabolism uncovering the cell type diversity and functional heterogeneity of hypothalamic regulatory circuits to allow dissecting, targeting and improving the CNS control of metabolism. This years conference will be hosted by Matthias Tschöp, Helmholtz Zentrum München and Jens Brüning, Max Planck Institute Cologne.
