Microphone in front of blue, curved line and lecture hall seats.

The first seminar of the new cross-disciplinary format Diabetes Plus takes place on the 12th of November. You can now register for the event.

Diabetes Plus is a new seminar series arranged by Uppsala Diabetes Centre (UDC). Its purpose is to bring together speakers and attendants from various scholastic and societal domains to discuss current issues within diabetes research. The first seminar – entitled “Diabetes + Politics” – will focus on healthcare and the political dimension with regards to diabetes.

Our guest for the day is Lina Nordquist – a parliamentarian, author, and Associate Professor in Physiology. The seminar will consist of a presentation followed by questions from the audience. Discussions will be moderated by Peter Bergsten, Professor in Cell Biology, who is also the main organiser of the new seminar series. The session will open with a short introduction by UDC deputy director Steve McKeever (Associate Professor in Information Systems).

“Diabetes + Society” starts at 12 o’clock in Betty Petterssonsalen (Blåsenhus) and will last for approximately an hour. UDC have arranged for a light lunch from 11.30. There are limited spots, but for those of you who cannot attend physically the seminar will be streamed via Zoom.

Warm Welcome!
