About 366 million people worldwide are suffering from diabetes. The diabetes rate in the UAE is among the highest in the world with currently 19.2%. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi alone is spending more than AED 1 billion per year to treat diabetes and diseases connected with it.
Diabetes treatment programs have started worldwide and focus on prevention and personalized, evidence-based treatment, utilizing clinical practice guidelines and innovative technologies in diabetes care. Germany has strong expertise in the field of diabetes treatment and flagship projects like the Personalized Diabetes Management System of the Institute of Applied Diabetes Research Karlsburg (KADIS) are internationally groundbreaking.The “German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations” aims to inform healthcare professionals from the UAE and Gulf region about best practices from Germany and is designed to be an interactive exchange among local and international healthcare experts to show solutions for the effective treatment of a growing number of diabetes patients.
After the workshop you are cordially invited to join us for a networking reception in the foyer.The seminar will cover the following topics:

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...
An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...
Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...
Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
