Translational Diabetes

In Singapore, there are over 400,000 people living with diabetes. Patients can develop complications, including cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, eye problems and foot ulcers. Diabetes cost Singapore more than S$1 billion in 2010 and is expected to soar to more than S$2.5 billion by 2050. Translational medicine is central to the goal of converting basic discoveries to diagnostic and therapeutic tools that can be harnessed to treat diseases and improve human health. In this panel discussion organized with the Eureka Institute of Translational Medicine on 7 August 2018, we focused on translational opportunities in diabetes.
