About SSSD

The Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD) was established in the 1960s. The aim of the SSSD is to bring together people with an interest in diabetes research, both from Nordic countries and elsewhere. We hold annual meetings aiming to strengthen collaborative relationships that will lead to advancement in diabetes research. The international board of the SSSD presently consists of Bjørn Olav Åsvold (chair) and Kåre Birkeland for Norway, Riitta Veijola for Finland, Nils Wierup and Gustaf Christoffersson for Sweden, Esben Søndergaard and Kristian Karstoft for Denmark and Helga Sigurjonsdottir and Ragnar Grímur Bjarnason from Iceland. We strongly encourage everyone residing in - and also outside - the Nordic countries who is interested in diabetes research to participate in the yearly meetings.
