The Diabetes Research Center (DRC) sponsors an annual diabetes symposium held each November in honor of World Diabetes Day. This day-long program brings together DRC scientists and their trainees to showcase outstanding recent developments in diabetes research, to foster new collaborations, and to increase DRC scientists’ collective knowledge of diabetes research at Washington University and at other outstanding institutions.

Based on recommendations of the Internal Advisory Committee, one or two external experts are invited annually to deliver a lecture and interact with DRC investigators in a research forum where posters are presented by DRC laboratories (average 50/year) and in one-on-one meetings.

When possible, the Diabetes Day Program been coordinated with visits by External Advisors to the DRC, as lectures by these outstanding leaders in diabetes research are well suited for this occasion, and the opportunity to learn about a broad sampling of the DRC research at the poster session is invaluable in their assessment of Center productivity.
