Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I am delighted to welcome you to Mantua and to the Seventh Edition of this Workshop on Diabetes Mellitus and Related Disorders.
This time the focus of the Workshop is on the translation of research findings to clinical implementation. The achievements of genetic studies and molecular medicine as well as the findings from epidemiology, clinical physiology and pathophysiology are mostly useful when they are instrumental in identifying new approaches in diagnosing, monitoring and treating patients with the disease.
Understanding causes and mechanisms is crucial but translating the acquired knowledge into the clinical ground is the ultimate goal of biomedical research.
The program is based upon 27 talks grouped in 12 sessions. Plenty of time will be allowed after each presentation to promote an intense and fruitful discussion.
Please do not hesitate to participate into the discussion! Diabetes epidemic is growing restlessly worldwide with an increased burden for nations and individuals.
A dissemination of most advanced knowledge and a peer-to-peer discussion on the crucial aspects of diabetes care are certainly necessary to empower physicians who struggle against the disease.
As usual, the Faculty of this Workshop includes top scientists, outstanding investigators and key opinion leaders in their fields, coming from Europe and North America.
During the four days of the Workshop these colleagues, who enthusiastically accepted my invitation motivated exclusively by the commitment to serve the scientific community, will share with the audience their knowledge, experience and opinions.
The audience includes a large group of young Italian researchers in the area of diabetes who are looking forward to participate actively into the discussion, providing their enthusiasm, motivation and new ideas. They will be the stars of Italian research in the field of diabetes.
Welcome again and enjoy the Workshop and your stay in Mantua.
