SUND Seminars - Andrew Hattersley ”Precision diabetes: Right diagnosis leads to the right treatment”.

LECTURE AND RECEPTION Professor Andrew Hattersley will talk about ‘Precision diabetes: Right diagnosis leads to the right treatment’ at the next SUND seminar.

What are the principles of precision medicine? How should the treatment be matched to the patient?

Lecture and reception
Andrew Hattersley will give his lecture on 18 September 2017 at 4 pm in the Henrik Dam auditorium at Panum, followed by a reception at 5 pm.

Andrew Hattersley will give his lecture on 18 September 2017 at 4 pm in the Henrik Dam auditorium at Panum, followed by a reception at 5 pm. The
lecture will explore the hypothesis that in precision diabetes, increased
understanding of the aetiology of diabetes will allow better and more specific
treatment.  Andrew Hattersley will present progress in defining new
subtypes of diabetes and relating these back to treatment response. 
Examples will be taken from monogenic diabetes – both MODY and Neonatal
diabetes as well as type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
