Invitation to ISPAD Science School for Physicians 2019

“Moving the brains towards diabetes research


September 8 – September 12, 2019

 Rotterdam, The Netherlands


   Dear ISPAD members and trainees,

   It is our pleasure to inform you that the application for the 2019 ISPAD Science School for Physicians in Rotterdam, The Netherlands is now open.

   This intensive week of research training will take place at the Novotel Rotterdam Brainpark between September 8 and September 12, 2019.

   We invite physicians from around the globe who are currently receiving pediatric endocrine/diabetes training or those at an early stage of career development in diabetes research.  From the applications, we will select a maximum of 20 students.

   The course aims to provide pediatric diabetologists-in-training an opportunity to further increase knowledge and to learn new skills in the area of diabetes research in children and adolescents. Fundamental and clinical topics in mainly type 1 diabetes will be covered, as wel as  several aspects of diabetes research (statistics, designing studies, reporting, applications for funding etc). The lectures and training will be covered by local pediatric and internal experts and invited foreign members of ISPAD. Members of JENIOUS, who previously attended a Science School, will be available as mentors for the students.

    Set in the Rotterdam Brainpark, overlooking the Erasmus University, we encourage scientific thinking in diabetes research, in a friendly atmosphere with lots of opportunities to interact with each other and the faculty members alike.

   Central element in the School is that students will have an opportunity to discuss and develop their own research and plans.

   We are very happy, on behalf of ISPAD and JDRF, to announce that the best research project will be awarded an ISPAD/JDRF research fellowship (25 000 USD) .
