Held once a year, it provides a two-day forum for rigorous scientific exchanges among scientists involved in research of pancreatic islet function, development/growth, immunology and transplantation. Participants include graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and established investigators. The presentations often focus on exciting, early-stage, unpublished results. Initially formed in 1993 by scientists in the Boston area and Cornell University in Ithaca (NY), it has grown to include over 100 academic and industry scientists from Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Registration will be open soon!
