The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) Research Open Meetings are a fantastic way to keep up to date with the latest research developments and a great way to meet other families who are also affected by type 1 diabetes. The day itself will feature presentations from five of the UK’s top researchers on topics including the artificial pancreas, beta cells and islet transplantation. There will also be an inspirational talk from Douglas Cairns who conducted a round the world flight despite having type 1 diabetes.

Dr John Petrie from the University of Dundee is chairing the event, which will be held at the Royal College of Physicians on Saturday 1st November at 10am until 3pm.
