Description

Diabetes Research: A Guide for Postgraduates opens out the important world of research into a disease that is thousands of years old but still has no cure. By presenting a succinct overview into the work of researchers struggling to find answers for 200 million diabetics world-wide, this book is a pocket reference essential for new researchers in a field where the number of those afflicted is expected to double, if not triple , in coming decades.

Exploring the character and physiology of the disease, Diabetes Research discusses long-term complications and treatment strategies, reviews international learned societies and journals, and provides practical insight into research on the frontline, as well as essential information on sources of research funds.

Graduates and postgraduates alike who are just entering the field of diabetes from a range of differing medical specialties such as endocrinology, immunology, ophthalmology, vascular biology, and metabolism at large will find this book an invaluable guide to their continuing careers.
