Abstract

The annual meeting of the European Group for the study of Insulin Resistance (EGIR) was held in Dublin, Ireland in May 2017. Ably organized by Dr. Mesud Hatunic, Consultant Endocrinologist at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, the conference explored the pathophysiology and treatment of insulin resistance and extended a perspective to include aspects of clinical diabetes care including diabetic retinopathy (Dr. David Keegan, Consultant Vitreo-Retinal Surgeon, Mater University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland), monogenic forms of diabetes (Dr. Maria Byrne, Consultant in Endocrinology and Diabetes, Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Dublin, Ireland) and the impact of gastric bypass surgery (Professor Carel le Roux, Co-Director of the Metabolic Medicine Group, University College, Dublin, Ireland). The group actively welcomed the participation of members who have recently joined from the Pasteur Institute in Lille, France, including Dr. Caroline Bonner, who will co-host the Spring 2018 EGIR meeting there with Professor Francois Pattou. New members are always welcome, e-mail: egir@med.unipi.it for details.
