See you in San Diego!

Members of the T2D Knowledge Portal team are gearing up for the 77th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association, June 9-13 in San Diego, CA. We'll be releasing exciting new features of the Portal just before the conference, and we have a wide variety of presentations planned for each day.

On the opening day of the conference (Friday, June 9), join us for a mini-symposium that will present a comprehensive guide to the T2D Knowledge Portal and how you can use it to further your type 2 diabetes research. We will be exhibiting at booth #2452 on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and each day, genetics experts will be available at the booth to answer questions and discuss both the Portal and the genetics of T2D. On Saturday, members of the Portal team will participate in a moderated poster session, and posters will also be displayed on Monday. And on Sunday morning, our principal investigator, Dr. Jose C. Florez, will give a symposium presentation on "Mining the Genome for Therapeutic Targets."

Find the full details in the schedule below and follow us on Twitter (@T2DKP) for up-to-the-minute news throughout the conference. We're looking forward to meeting you!
