Now in its fifth year, TAD is back in March
2020 and will see a host of people take
to the stage to share their personal
experiences of Type 1 diabetes. The
aim is to generate discussion and new
thinking through shared experience. You
can register interest for a maximum of four
tickets per person (two adults and two
children). TADpole (for eight-to-12-yearolds), will run in parallel to the TAD
Applications for TADpole places should
be registered via the TADpole ticket
option - children must be accompanied
by an adult with a TAD talk ticket.
For this year event tickets will be
allocated via a ballot. Event management
support is provided by Novo Nordisk,
and the event takes place Saturday 28
March 2020, 09:30am - 16:30pm at the
Royal College of Physicians London NW1.
To enter the ballot before 31 December
A collaboration between the Institute of
Diabetes and Regeneration Research at
Helmholtz Zentrum München and Lilly
is seeking to improve and accelerate
diabetes treatment by researching
pancreatic beta cell regeneration.
Focusing on the identification,
validation and targeting of novel pathways
and molecules for triggering beta cell
regeneration, the goal is to develop new
therapies that preserve and/or restore
mass and functionality of people's
remaining beta cells.
Prof. Heiko Lickert, Director of the
Institute of Diabetes and Regeneration
Research, said: "We are excited to be
working with Lilly. This collaboration is
a perfect opportunity to combine the
strength of our basic and translational
research performed at Helmholtz Zentrum
München with Lilly's expertise in drug
discovery and development for diabetes
TALKING 'BOUT REGENERATION

Carbs&Cals series of books and app, then see their news video. They give you an
overview of what's been going on, including grim tales of suppliers going into liquidation.
So, we're very glad that these guys have stuck it out. They have news of a new supplier
partnership. You can take this opportunity complete a survey to help in the development
of the new app which should be available early next year. To watch the video CLICK
