28 Nov 2012 - 29 Nov 2012 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


Join your peers at the only conference dedicated to the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in diabetes, this autumn, in London.  Our distinguished faculty unite the fields of pharmacology, nanotechnology and clinical medicine to target atherosclerosis, endothelial inflammation and end-stage renal disease. SMi's unique program brings together the latest research from those at the forefront of attenuating the complications arising from hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia, and angiopathy. 

Benefits of attending include:

Receive updates on novel GLP1 receptor agonists, SGLT2 and DPP-4 inhibitors

Review clinical results from the DEMAND study

Utilise biomarkers and imaging for the development of novel cardiovascular and renal therapies

Evaluate new targets to reduce hypertension, hyperkalaemia and endothelial inflammation

Ensure compliance with new FDA and EU guidelines when conducting risk-benefit assessments

Plus an interactive pre–conference workshop

Tuesday 27th November 2012, The Copthorne Tara Hotel, London

Cardio-renal risk in type 2 diabetes information from clinical trials:

What we have, what do we need to know?

Workshop leader: Luigi Gnudi, Professor of Diabetes and Metabolic Medicine, Honorary Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology, Head, Unit for Metabolic Medicine, Cardiovascular Division, King’s College London

1.30pm-5.30pm

Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes?
Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Microbiome May Hold the Key to Fighting Obesity
In a unique study of free-ranging brown bears, Swedish researchers were able to show that the bears’ dietary variation goes hand-in-hand with dramatic changes in the animal’s gut microbiota.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Proteins Seek, Attack, Destroy Tumor Cells in Bloodstream
Using white blood cells to ferry potent cancer-killing proteins through the bloodstream virtually eliminates metastatic prostate cancer in mice, Cornell researchers have confirmed.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.
Flipping Molecular 'Switch' May Reduce Nicotine's Effects in the Brain
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that a lipid (fat molecule) in brain cells may act as a “switch” to increase or decrease the motivation to consume nicotine.
