Join scientific colleagues for discussions around risks and progress in the field of type 2 diabetes drug discovery and development. From podium presentations, an 'expert' panel session, roundtable breakout discussions and networking opportunities you will be able to:

-Keep abreast of progress on SGLT2 inhibitors and other anti-diabetes drug candidates
-Ask questions of panelists discussing 'Diabetes Drug Development Challenges'
-Learn about gastric by-pass proteins and other new targets for diabetes drugs
-Participate and problem-solve in a small group discussion on a focused topic of interest to you

Please also join us for a special dinner short course* on Targeting Pancreatic Islets for Type 2 Diabetes(click here), one of the newest areas of diabetes research, which takes place on the evening of the first day of the meeting, Nov. 3rd.

4:15 Preclinical Research Models of Diabetes and Their Use in Efficacy Assessment of Therapeutics
David S. Grass, Ph.D., Vice President, Scientific Operations, Taconic
To address the challenges facing the biopharmaceutical industry, Taconic was one of the first to develop and validate a broad, in vivo focused platform, which utilizes cost-efficient mice to comprehensively characterize drug development candidates and/or genetic targets. One of the strengths of this program is the ability to characterize genetic targets and potential therapeutics impacting metabolic disorders.  Specifically, a variety of models exist for diabetes, simulating the disease condition by affecting various glucoregulatory pathways.
