About the Diabetes Research
Virtual Seminar Series

Spring 2023 Schedule

The Virtual Diabetes Research Seminar Series began as an effort to connect investigators and trainees during this time of great change and isolation related to the COVID crisis. This seminar series is organized by several NIDDK-funded Diabetes Research Centers. Each seminar in the series features an outstanding scientist or panel of scientists discussing the latest in diabetes, obesity, or metabolic research.

The seminars are held on the second Wednesday of the month unless this date coincides with a federal holiday. All webinars are free to attend.

Trainees are encouraged to sign-up to meet with speakers after each seminar.
