Registration:

You are invited to submit an abstract of up to 250 words when registering your interest. A panel of representatives from Cambridge and the Danish Diabetes Academy will consider the submitted abstracts and select presenters to ensure a balanced programme. Registration is free but spaces are limited; therefore preference will be given to presenters wishing to give a poster presentation.

Registration is now closed.

All muscle fibres within the muscle are delineated by dystrophin stain (green outline). Different types of fibre within the muscle are visualised by fill colour – 2B fibres (red), 2A fibres (green), 2X fibres (no colour).  Muscles are composed of a heterogenous mix of fibre types which are ‘fast-twitch’ or ‘slow-twitch’, optimally arranged for speed or endurance, respectively.
