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 be held January 18-19 2019

Abstracts may be sent before December 1st 2018

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 8th until May 10th 2019 in Denmark.

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 2019 the meeting will be held in Denmark, under the flag of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research and financial supported by an unrestricted grant from Sanofi. The costs to participate are € 200,00 (including registration, hotel and meals).

The next meeting will be held in Denmark, May 8-10, 2019

Abstracts may be sent before March 1st 2019

Organisers

Dr. Peter van Dijk

Peter is in training at the University Medical Centre Groningen to become internist-endocrinologist. He received this PhD for studying the (extra)glycaemic effects of intraperitoneal insulin administration in type 1 diabetes (January 2015).

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.
