Diabetesforbundets forskningskonferanse is the annual research conference of the Norwegian Diabetes Association, which this year was held at Clarion Hotel & Congress Oslo Airport on 28-29th of April.
Our research group was represented by:
- Luiza Ghila talked about regenerative strategies currently under development to be used for diabetes treatment, with a focus on stem cell technology.
- Yngvild Bjørlykke showed how to use patient own cells to create new insulin-producing cells.
The other 2 presentations from the Diabetes Stem Cell which I would like to mention were given by Hanne Scholz (mesechymal stem cells in the treatment of type 1 diabetes) and Jørn V. Sagen (brown fat cells in obesity and type 2 diabetes).
Although the meeting was mainly in Norwegian, the atmosphere was lively, with story readings and research data presentations, combined with good food and exercise-induced endorphines.
