One in 16 people in the UK are estimated to have diabetes, with 20% going undiagnosed. Yet with 10% of the NHS budget going towards diabetes care, a cure still seems elusive. In this talk we will examine what diabetes really is, what its causes could be, and what we can expect in the near future. We will also explore the discoveries that have shaped our understanding of this disease, and which transformed it from the death sentence it once was.
The talk will take place 6.30pm - 7.30pm in Lecture Theatre 1, Academic Block, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU
