SciBar brings interesting, topical areas of science to the general public with scientific talks followed by lively discussion.

Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and there is a rapid increase in the number affected each year. The treatment usually requires the injection of insulin several times a day to replace what the pancreas cannot produce itself.  In this SciBar, Dr Frank Waldron-Lynch will discuss how his research is aiming to develop innovative treatments that could eradicate the need for regular injections or pumps.

The second speaker, Dr Nita Forouhi, manages a programme of research that aims to understand the association between diet and the risk of diabetes, obesity and related disorders. Dietary factors can either elevate or reduce the risk of developing diabetes. Dr Forouhi will speak about improved methods to assess diet, and how objectively measured nutritional biomarkers can help.
