1st Heidelberg International Symposium 
on Diabetic Complications

27. und 28.10.2014

The conference will highlight recent exciting developments in key areas of vascular biology and diabetes, including current progress in vascular-metabolic aspects and clinical perspectives in the treatment of diabetes and its long-term complications. We envision contributions allowing the audience to gain an overview of the recent progress on these fundamental topics in biomedicine.
