ISPAD Rare Diabetes

The ISPAD Rare Diabetes in Exeter led by Prof. Andrew Hattersley (andrew.hattersley@pms.ac.uk) is the central clearing house for all enquiries from ISPAD members about rare diabetes. It is a resource for information about all forms of diabetes, and offers molecular genetic testing on most monogenic forms of diabetes. If the person (even if an adult today) was diagnosed with diabetes before age 6 months, this analysis is done for free (except for shipping costs).

2007 ISPAD Science School for Health Professionals

The Fourth ISPAD Science School for Health Professionals will be held in Berlin immediately prior to the 34th Annual Scientific Meeting of ISPAD. The 3 day meeting is designed for nurses, dietitians, psychologists, social workers and podiatrists (not MD’s) who have or wish to develop a research interest and expertise in diabetes in young people. The School will give participants an understanding of research methodologies, qualitative and quantitative statistics and will provide constructive discussion about research projects currently being undertaken or considered.
