Zinc & Diabetes Workshop, Yeruham, Southern Israel

Dr Stewart recently attended a workshop in Israel on the topic of Zinc & Diabetes. The meeting which took place on 28-30th November brought together over 20 principal investigators from both the UK and Israel. The workshop led to interesting discussions relating to the roles that deficiency and mishandling of zinc play in the disease. Dr Stewart would especially like to thank Prof Arie Moran (Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel) and Dr Imre Lengyel (Queen’s University Belfast) for putting together such an interesting programme and the Academic Study Group for funding.
