3rd Heidelberg International Symposium on Diabetic Complications

06. - 08.10.2016

The conference will highlight recent exciting developments in key areas of diabetic (long-term) complications, covering a wide range from vascular biology and neuropathology to epigenetics and clinical studies.
We envision contributions allowing the audience to gain an overview of the recent exciting progress on these fundamental topics.
