Diabetes and its related complications have reached epidemic proportions. We have come a long way since the discovery of insulin to cure this life threatening disease. We have seen improved versions of insulin like Humulin, Humalog, improved delivery systems consisting of insulin like Exubera, to the introduction of PPAR based drugs like pioglitazone, rosiglitazone etc, and GLP-1 based drugs like Exendin developed to treat diabetes.

But the wonder drug for treating, curing and preventing diabetes is still elusive, and there are huge unmet patient needs. The big question is what next, and how? Hence we have focused the theme of the symposium on 'Advances in Diabetes Therapy - Basic Science and Clinical Aspects'.

This symposium will provide you with an unique opportunity to hear from legends in the field of diabetes like, Dr. Barbara Kahn & Dr. Micheal Czech - two of the world's leading diabetes researchers and Banting medal awardees; Dr. Richard DiMarchi & Dr. August Watanabe, the discoverer and developer of Humulin & Humalog; Dr. Walter Wahli, Dr. Bart Steals & Dr. Nikolaus Marx, who have dedicated their lives to identify various isoforms of PPAR’s and its mechanism of action; Dr. Alian Baron and Dr. David Moller - from Amylin & Lilly respectively, the two companies which jointly developed Exendin; to name a few.
