The famous researchers from USA, Japan and Korea will make their presentation. Each symposium is composed of Clinical diabetes / therapeutics, Diabetic complications , Obesity, Insulin resistance, Education and integrated care, Islet biology, Epidemiology/genetics so that participants are able to discuss their own scientific research field in depth.
