MIC MeetingThe Midwest Islet Club (MIC) will hold its seventh annual meeting, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Birmingham, from Wednesday afternoon, May 21st to Thursday evening, May 22nd, 2014.
ABOUT THE MIC CONFERENCE
The goal of this meeting is to foster greater communication and interaction between pancreatic beta cell biology investigators. The meeting will be composed of both senior and junior investigators, with a decided focus towards students, postdoctoral fellows and newly independent investigators serving as speakers. There will be a keynote talk on Thursday afternoon by an established islet investigator in memory of the late Dr. Paul Lacy – The 7th Lacy Medal Lecture. Presentations will communicate the latest in cutting-edge pancreatic islet research with relevance to both type-1 and -2 diabetes. The hope of the organizing committee is that the participation of the roughly 175 investigators will result in greater collaborations among individuals and their supporting groups.
Look out for future communications – that will give more information about the MIC 2014 meeting such as details of registration, the website, accommodation, abstract submission, awards, etc.
We really look forward to seeing you at MIC 2014 in Birmingham – building on the successes of MIC meetings before.
