Welch Center Core Faculty member Jessica Yeh, PhD, spoke earlier this week at the annual conference of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Stockholm, Sweden. She spoke on her recent research on associations between diabetes and the occurrence of cancer in patients. Program notes point out that her work has been “highlighted in both diabetes and cancer research communities.” Dr. Yeh stressed that in her presentation, she highlighted the cancer-related studies done not only by herself, but also by and with Drs. Brancati, Snyder, Peairs, Stein, Clark, Maruthur, and Barone. Besides her individual presentation, Dr. Yeh participated in a press conference with four other experts on diabetes and cancer.
