The 53rd Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD)


Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) in Turku, Finland, 11-13 April 2018.

The objective of the Annual Meeting of SSSD is to give diabetes researchers and clinicians in the Nordic and neighbouring countries an opportunity to meet and discuss clinical and experimental diabetes research.

For the symposia, we have invited lecturers to cover both clinical themes and cutting edge basic science. The meeting provides an opportunity for scientists to present their own clinical or basic science. It has always been the aim of the annual meetings of SSSD to enable also young researchers to meet and orally present research projects in a friendly yet knowledgeable environment.

We hope that many of you will be able to participate and look forward to seeing you in Turku!

Yours sincerely,
