On-site March 24

The aim of this meeting is to explore the multi-disciplinary progress made in systems biology of diabetes and beta cells, to discuss the major

outstanding problems that remain to be solved, to foster new research collaborations, and to introduce students and young researchers to the field.

Objectives of the Workshop

1. To explore and present the development of new experimental and theoretical approaches for the purposes of investigating diabetes as a complex disease.
2. To promote the interaction between mathematicians, biologists, medical doctors, engineers, physicists, and chemists with interests in all aspects of diabetes and beta-cell research.
3. To provide a forum for junior faculty and graduate students to interact with a wide range of experts.
4. To suggest new problems for modeling and experiment.
5. To attract new researchers to the field.
