- Breaking news from clinical trials

Made up of six parallel tracks, the programme includes symposia, keynote lectures and debates, covering both basic and clinical science. The scientific programme includes the Claude Bernard Lecture, Minkowski Lecture, Camillo Golgi Lecture and the Albert Renold Prise Lecture. The Rising Star Symposium aims to identify promising and innovative young researchers who are developing their research activities in Europe.

Titles of the lectures and symposia are online at www.easd.org. Additionally, soon after the event, webcasts of the major lectures will be accessible via the website.
