Fighting Diabetes: from Molecule to Malady

Professor Frances Ashcroft talks about new findings about diabetes.

Type-2 diabetes is a serious metabolic disease that is reaching epidemic proportions in Western societies and is predicted to affect 300 million people worldwide by 2025. It occurs when the body does not make enough insulin for its needs.

Professor Frances Ashcroft, from the Henry Wellcome Centre for Gene Function at the University of Oxford, will discuss new findings about insulin production and what goes wrong with this process in diabetes.

She will also show how such studies have enabled children born with a rare genetic form of diabetes to live a life free from daily insulin injections.
