HiDC 2015

2nd Heidelberg International Symposium 
on Diabetic Complications 

16. und 17.10.2015

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.
