New Diabetes Forum at the 2011 BIO International Convention
The number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes — the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. — has risen by epidemic proportions. In addition, the disease is estimated to affect 435 million people worldwide by 2030. BIO and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation will feature a two-day diabetes forum for the first time at the 2011 BIO International Convention in Washington, DC. The sessions will showcase the latest research in novel therapies, vaccines, and biomarkers.
