Lunch Webinar Series on Diabetes and Related Metabolic Diseases

The Animal Resources Core Lab is organizing a webinar series in May about diabetes and metabolic diseases with a focus on animal models. In total, eight speakers from both academia and industry will present their most recent findings. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about technological advancements and how animal models can be used to prevent and treat an increasingly serious global health problem, with Saudi Arabia having some of the highest rates of diabetes and metabolic diseases in the world. 

Each talk is approximately 35 min followed by a Q&A session. 

All are welcome to register and attend. Registration links included below.
