For the first time – PhD course Introduction to diabetes research


The UDC course Introduction to diabetes research is given for the first time on 12–16 September 2022.

The course curriculum includes lectures on different aspects of diabetes, including common causes of diabetes, physiological and metabolic changes associated with diabetes, strategies to prevent and treat diabetes and the societal impact of the disease. These theoretical parts are also mixed with group work where participants will discuss some of these topics, put them in context and orally present conclusions.

The course is suitable for doctoral students affiliated with Uppsala Diabetes Center (UDC) or the research tracks “Metabolism”, “Inflammation” and “Cardiovascular”, but also open to other applicants.
