EASD Academy Journal Club
We are pleased to invite you to join us for the next EASD Academy Journal Club on 6 April 2023 at 5pm CEST.
Mohammad Tariq from Lund University in Sweden will present and discuss his paper: Prolonged culture of human pancreatic islets under glucotoxic conditions changes their acute beta cell calcium and insulin secretion glucose response curves from sigmoid to bell-shaped.
EASD Academy Mentorship Programme
The programme aims to bring together junior clinicians/researchers with established mentors to boost the development and career of the mentee, and to develop their network in the diabetes field.
10 mentorship awards of each 1,000 Euro are available, applications are welcome until the deadline on 16 April 2023.

EASD Academy Activities
Webinars and Workshops
The webinars will be held by senior experts who will provide guidance on very practical, key topics that will help early-career clinical and basic/translational investigators move their skills forward.
Grant writing, work-life balance, manuscript reviewing and scientific communication to the public are just some of the topics that will be delved into by experienced leaders in the field of diabetes.
The Academy Journal Club, in collaboration with Diabetologia, aims to provide authors at an early stage of their career with the opportunity to disseminate their findings and inspire their colleagues worldwide. The Journal Club will also serve as an interactive tool for members of the EASD/Diabetologia community who wish to keep up-to-date with the latest scientific advancements in the field of diabetes in a timely, interactive fashion.
Papers accepted for publication in Diabetologia will be selected by members of the EASD Academy on a regular basis. The first/junior author of the paper will be invited to present and discuss the work in a live webinar moderated by one of the EASD Academy members. The webinar will include a Q&A session, when the audience will be able to interact directly with the author.
The EASD Academy will closely cooperate with the EASD Postgraduate Education Committee (PGEC), which decides the strategy for educational activities (basic scientist training courses, clinician training courses).
Two members of the Year-Round Webinars/Workshops subgroup, who will act on behalf of the EASD Academy, will sit on the Postgraduate Education Committee. This will allow high interaction between the EASD Academy and the PGEC, to jointly design courses tailored to all the EASD Academy members, and to develop spin-off webinars based on PGE courses. Members of the EASD Academy will also serve as teachers in the EASD postgraduate courses.
The EASD Academy Mentorship Programme aims to bring together junior clinicians or researchers with established mentors to accelerate the development and career of the mentee, and to develop their network in the diabetes field.
The programme will facilitate the contact between early-career researchers or clinicians and an engaged mentor with the aim to discuss mentoring-, coaching- and/or project-related topics in an informal atmosphere at approximately five meetings a year, which can be held virtually or in person. For travel expenses, 1,000 Euros/ year will be provided per recipient.
The EASD Academy aims to provide early career researchers additional opportunities to develop their network and build fruitful collaborations. A special event is organised during the EASD Annual Meeting with the inspirational participation of prize-winning scientists in the field of diabetes.
This event is open to all EASD members and anyone interested in joining the academy to discuss about career development and to network with fellow European early career researchers in informal and friendly settings.
The Academy will also work on developing online tools to favour networking all year round such as follow-ups of Academy activities, discussion about grant and job opportunities.
A directory of Academy members is planned to help early career researchers to connect when looking for complementary skills for their research or develop new projects across Europe.
