Jonge NVDO bijeenkomst

Annual meeting of the young investigators of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research (‘jonge NVDO-bijeenkomst’)

Once yearly, this meeting is held in the Netherlands. Young investigators from the Netherlands and Belgium who participate in clinical, basic or epidemiological research related to diabetes are invited to submit an abstract. 12-16 participants usually attend the meeting and present their data. Two senior discussants and the other presenters provide feedback. An abstract may consist of (preliminary) data, a case report or a research proposal.

The next meeting will likely be held January 8 2021

Northern European Young Diabetologists (NEYD)

The annual meeting of North European Young Diabetologists NEYD (formerly Anglo-Danish-Dutch- Diabetes-Group) will take place from Wednesday May 27th until May 29th 2020 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

NEYD is a small friendly research meeting. The best 10 candidates from each of the UK, Netherlands/Belgium and Denmark meet and get to present and discuss their work. More experienced researchers are on hand to guide and critique. At the end of the meeting one senior investigator will hold a state of the art lecture, and two other senior investigators will have a debate on a controversial or challenging diabetes related topic. In addition to the scientific program, each year a social activity (usually outdoors) is organized which additionally provides the opportunity to meet diabetes researchers from other countries in a relaxed environment.

In 2020 the meeting will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland, under the flag of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research and financial supported by an unrestricted grant from Sanofi. The costs to participate are approximately € 200,00 (including registration, hotel and meals).

The next meeting will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 26-28, 2021

Abstracts may be sent before March 1st 2021

Dr. Mark Smits

Mark is in training at the Amsterdam University Medical Center (location VUmc) to become an internist-endocrinologist. He received his PhD for studying the cardiovascular and gastro-intestinal effects of GLP-1 receptor agonists in patients with type 2 diabetes (november 2017).

Anouk Janssen, MSc

Anouk is working at the Radboud University Medical Centre. She is in training to become internist-specialist in vascular medicine. Currently she is doing research to obtain her PhD. She is studying whether long-term activation of innate immune cells, mediated by a shift in intracellular metabolism and epigenetic modifications, explains the increased risk for cardiovascular complications associated with episodes of hyperglycemia in type 1 diabetes.
