Diabetes and the cardiovascular risk challenge

– mechanisms, epidemiology and treatment aspects

When & Where?
23-25 May 2018 at Jubileumsaulan, Medicinskt forskningscentrum, SUS Malmö at Jan Waldenströms gata 1 in Malmö, Sweden.

The Berzelius symposia are the most prestigious scientific meetings organised by the Swedish Society for Medicine (SSM), this time in collaboration with Lunds Universitet (LU) and Karolinska Institutet (KI). The symposium will focus on mechanisms and clinical aspects of the relationship between diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the light of new studies and trial data that expand our understanding of this relationship and new treatment possibilities. An abstract book and proceedings will be published.

The conference is open to all clinicians and basic science representatives from the Nordic area, international guests and lecturers, as well as representatives from pharma and device manufacturers.

We hope that you will join us for the Berzelius symposium on 23–24th May 2018 and look forward to your active participation. There will be a number of oral presentations but also a possibility to submit abstracts for poster presentation.

Welcome to Malmö in May 2018!
