Pancreatic islet research from fundamental to clinical aspects:


 May 30 - June 2, 2013


Dear Colleagues,

The 1st , 2nd and the 3rd International Brussels Pancreatic Islet Symposium were  held in July, 2007, June, 2009 and June/July, 2011. It convened scientists from many parts of the world who devoted their discussions to pancreatic islet research, from fundamental to clinical aspects, with emphasis on metabolism, ionic fluxes, insulin secretion, imaging, transplantation and clinical findings. Contributions from these scientists were made in plenary lectures, short oral communications and poster session. We are most grateful for all participants and sponsors.

We are pleased to announce that 4th International Brussels Pancreatic Islet Symposium will take place in Brussels, Belgium, from May 30 to June 2, 2013.

This 4th Symposium will be held on the lines of the previous meetings. The major aims will be:

i) to bring together experts on both the fundamental and clinical aspects of pancreatic islet research,

ii) to offer young scientists the opportunity to follow lectures held by senior investigators, providing them with an overview on current knowledge on the subject and to present their own contributions by way of short communications and posters,

iii) to allow a multidisciplinary interaction between scientists specialized in various domains such as cellular physiopathology, biochemistry, signalling pathways, pharmacological, pathological and clinical investigations.

The 4th International Brussels Pancreatic Islet Symposium promises a creative, rich and varied scientific program of metabolic, functional, clinical studies and case reports in the form of plenary lectures by invited speakers, shorter oral presentations, poster sessions and exhibitions.

You are already encouraged to pre-register (lower registration cost) and submit your studies to the scientific committee. All accepted abstracts will be published in Metabolic and Functional Research on Diabetes, online journal.

For further information, please keep contact with our web site and/or contact us by email

Sincerely yours


                                                                                     Professor Abdullah SENER
