Uppsala’s diabetes researchers come together in new centre


Uppsala University has decided to establish a multidisciplinary centre focusing on the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Researchers from SLU will contribute with for instance comparative diabetes research.

At Uppsala Diabetes Centre different competences will come together to facilitate knowledge transfer from basic experimental research to clinical applications. The multidisciplinary approach, which also involves diabetes research in veterinary medicine, will have synergy effects and provide new possibilities to develop treatment strategies for diabetes patients.

The centre includes a research school for doctoral students at Uppsala University’s three disciplinary domains and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences at SLU. Activities at the centre will start in January 2021.
