Welcome to SSSD2020!

Dear Colleagues,

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 55th Annual Meeting of the Scandinavian Society for the Study of Diabetes (SSSD), which will be held at Hotel Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim on April 16-18, 2020.  

 

The SSSD meeting will cover a broad range of themes, including diabetes epidemiology, diabetes technology, gestational diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome, functional follow-up of GWAS findings, diabetes classification and precision medicine. We hope you see this meeting as an opportunity to present your own research, and to meet and discuss clinical and experimental diabetes research with Nordic colleagues. An important aim of the annual meetings is also to give young researchers the chance to meet their peers and orally present research projects in a friendly yet knowledgeable environment.
