March 20th-22nd, 2021


Following the covid-19 epidemic, the workshop initially planned in May 2020 had to be rescheduled. New dates have now been set.

Registration and abstract submissions will reopen soon.

The programme remains similar as the programme initially intended however some talks may be subject to changes.


 We look forward to hosting you in the best conditions possible.


Insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are factories dedicated to produce and secrete impressive amounts of insulin, the only hormone that can decrease circulating glucose levels. Such beta cells are found clustered within the pancreas with other endocrine cells (alpha, delta, PP…). Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes have an insufficiency in their functional pancreatic beta cell mass. To advance diabetes treatment and to work towards a cure, a better understanding of islet cell development, regeneration, function and how to protect the pancreatic beta cells against autoimmune or metabolic assaults (e.g. obesity, gestation) is required.

The EASD Islet Study Group (ISG) is a group of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). ISG organizes yearly scientific meetings that focuse on research into islet biology in diabetes.

The next ISG meeting will take place at IGBMC in Strasbourg, France, from Saturday 20th to Monday 22nd March 2021 and is organized by Raphaël Scharfmann, Philippe Froguel and Gérard Gradwohl.

Topics will include: Islet development, function, regeneration in the context of Diabetes.

Slots are available for short talks selected based on abstracts. The programme includes as well a poster session.
