The Joslin Translational Center for the Cure of Diabetes opens at the Longwood Medical Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony this week.
More than 25 million Americans have diabetes, a number that is increasing by one million per year. More than 400,000 adults in Massachusetts have been diagnosed with diabetes. These numbers are increasing at epidemic rates (61% in the last 12 years). The cost of diabetes in Massachusetts is $4.3 billion annually.
The Joslin Diabetes Center was recently awarded $5 million from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, which was in turn matched with nearly $6 million from Joslin donors to build the translational center.
Joslin Translational Center researchers, Harvard University researchers, and local life science professionals are invited to participate in the upcoming Longwood Area Bioresearch Product Faire™ Event coming up on Thursday, April 24, 2014. There will be thousands of new lab products, hundreds of area researchers, and dozens of technical experts within this one convenient location. To register to attend please select an option below:
