The Western Region Islet Study Group (WRISG) 2019 meeting aims to bring together trainees and faculty studying islet biology to share their discoveries, enhance interactions, and encourage collaboration in diabetes across western Canada and the USA. Any research in islet biology is welcome, including beta cell development, beta cell function and dysfunction in diabetes, beta cell death and regeneration, other islet endocrine cells, and stem cells and islet cell therapy.
This meeting is being organized by the BC Diabetes Research Network, a local organizing committee, a steering committee of WRISG members, and with support from the University of British Columbia and industry partners.
There are three steps to register for the WRISG 2019 meeting.
Abstract submission deadline: July 9, 2019
