The purpose of the course is to give early career clinicians and basal researchers a common understanding of the basal molecular mechanisms involved in developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
After the course, the PhD students have basic understanding of basal metabolism, the pathophysiology of diabetes and its complications at the molecular level as a basis for the diagnosis and the treatment of type type 1 and 2 diabetes.
Basic skills, approaches and challenges in basal as well as clinical research are addressed and presentations will be given within the following areas:
- Fundamental biochemistry and cardiac physiology
- Type I diabetes
- Type II diabetes
- Treatment of T1D vs. T2D; drugs, nutrition and exercise
- CVDs and Diabetes; coronary heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and stroke
Together with senior scientists, specialists from the industry, fellow researchers and clinicians we will discuss and assess current and new knowledge within metabolism and molecular mechanisms in diabetes and its complications. During the three-day course, time is set aside to network in an informal and relaxed setting near the sea.
Who can attend?
The course is intended PhD candidates in molecular metabolism, diabetes, endocrinology and cardiology, as a postgraduate segment towards their PhD.
