It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 2nd joint meeting of the EASD - Islet Study Group and the Beta Cell Workshop from May 7-10th 2017 at the Westin Bellevue, Dresden, Germany.
This conference will provide an inspiring program, covering a wide spectrum of topics in the field of islet biology, i.e. beta cell development, maturation and regeneration, beta cell function, genetics & epigenetics of beta cells, beta cell therapy and beta cell interaction with immune cells. Leaders in the field, rising stars as well as postdocs and students will come together to exchange their latest findings and ideas in order to foster progress and networking in this research area.
Dresden, the Florence on the Elbe, is synonym for art and culture. The Saxon capital offers cultural treasures of European rank, world-famous art collections and also a lively music and theatre scene. Architectural jewels blend into a charming natural landscape and the rich variety of cultural activities characterizes the proud and creative atmosphere in this 800-year-old Baroque town. We encourage you to take this opportunity and benefit from an exciting meeting, an attractive social program and a chance to visit one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in Germany at a most pleasant season of the year.
On behalf of the International and Local Organizing Committees we look forward to welcoming you in Dresden in 2017.
