QU participated in a Virtual Diabetes Symposium at EASD2020

2020-09-23

A symposium of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Reactive Metabolite Study Group (RSMG) was co-organized by Dr. Naila Rabbani, Professor of Basic Medical Sciences at College of Medicine, Qatar University and Dr. Paul Thornalley, Director of the Diabetes Research Center at Qatar Biomedical Research Institute, Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU). They chaired the symposium today as part of the EASD 2020 virtual conference.
The Reactive Metabolites Study Group (RMSG) Symposium focused on mathematical metabolic modeling for the intrinsic prediction of the risk of developing insulin resistance and diabetic vascular complications. The speakers in the symposium were: Dr. Nicola Lai (University of Cagliari, Italy) and Dr. Alberto de la Fuente (QBRI, HBKU). They presented updates on the mathematical modeling of metabolic dysfunction linked to the development of vascular complications of diabetes.
Dr. Naila said: “This symposium has presented and discussed recent advancement made by researchers at QU and QBRI on key metabolic drivers of insulin resistance and diabetic vascular complications. With mathematical regulatory models, we can identify key mechanistic biomarkers for risk prediction of development of type 2 diabetes and diabetic vascular complications to support precision medicine”.
Dr. Thornalley said: “We are excited that we presented collaborative research from Qatar to a global audience at the EASD2020 conference.”
The Reactive Metabolites Study Group (RMSG) Symposium forms part of the EASD’s 56th Annual Meeting. Five days conference kicked off on September 21 and will end on September 25, the EASD annual conference will highlight the latest results in diabetes and related research. The virtual event is expected to attract over 17,000 participants from the global medical community.
