ADA 2019 – Diabetes Research Across the Spectrum

June, 2019

Jose C Florez joins us at the ADA annual meeting 2019 to discuss his presentation on diabetes research across the spectrum – from cell-based to clinical translation.

Filmed at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) annual meeting 2019, San Francisco, USA

Questions:
1) What are the major obstacles to achieving personalised medicine in diabetes?
2) What is the role of epigenetic changes in the progression of type 1 and type 2 diabetes?
3) How will increased understanding of these changes affect the management of patients of diabetes?
4) What further research is needed to elucidate the genetic architecture of type 2 diabetes?
5) What recent advances in translational research in diabetes have excited you most?

Midsummer Nights Science talk at Broad

July, 2017

What is diabetes? Why do some people develop diabetes and others do not? Could prevention and treatment be individualized for each patient? Using diabetes as a case study, Jose Florez will discuss the emerging approach of precision medicine — a quest to unravel the genetic basis of diseases and their complications in order to provide a basis for effective, tailored therapies. Florez will illustrate the power of contemporary genetics to address these crucial areas.
