About SSSD



Update, November 23, 2020:

Due to the Covid-19 situation, it will regrettably not be possible to hold next year's SSSD meeting in Trondheim on March 12-14 as planned.


Instead, we will hold a shorter digital meeting in March with a combination of award presentations, invited lectures and submitted abstracts. Please stay tuned for more information! 

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, Johanna Lempainen and Heli Siljander for Finland, Malin Flodström Tullberg and Niels Wierup for Sweden, Niels Grarup and Esben Søndergaard for Denmark and Kolbeinn Gudmundsson 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.
