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:

Using ultracold atoms trapped in light crystals, scientists from the MPQ, LMU, and the Weizmann Institute observe a novel state of matter that never thermalizes.
What happens if one mixes cold and hot water? After some initial dynamics, one is left with lukewarm water—the system has thermalized to a new thermal...
Physicists from Regensburg and Marburg, Germany have succeeded in taking a slow-motion movie of speeding electrons in a solid driven by a strong light wave. In the process, they have unraveled a novel quantum phenomenon, which will be reported in the forthcoming edition of Nature.
The advent of ever faster electronics featuring clock rates up to the multiple-gigahertz range has revolutionized our day-to-day life. Researchers and...
Researchers have developed an ultrafast light-emitting device that can flip on and off 90 billion times a second and could form the basis of optical computing.
Joint BioEnergy Institute study identifies bacterial protein that is key to protecting rice against bacterial blight
A bacterial signal that when recognized by rice plants enables the plants to resist a devastating blight disease has been identified by a multi-national team...
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.
By allowing indoor occupants to more precisely control the energy and sunlight passing through a window, the new materials could significantly reduce costs for...
