Annual SPHERE Conference 2023


We are excited to invite you to the first Annual SPHERE Conference in Israel.

This interdisciplinary conference is an excellent opportunity to catch up with the latest research in diabetes and obesity. Topics will, amongst others, include:

  • Updates on diabetes and obesity treatment approaches
  • New research around inequities in health in social and economic peripheries
  • Basic research into the interface of immunity, obesity, metabolism, microbiome, tissue regeneration, and their link to diabetes
  • Diabetes complications and the revolution in cardio-renal protection
  • Diabetes & obesity prevention
  • Ethical issues around diabetes and obesity

Alongside the main program, we will have scientific poster presentations including oral presentation, as well as selected professional exhibitions.





In 2021, the Azrieli Medical Faculty of Bar Ilan University launched a break-through strategic initiative in the Galilee – The Russel Berrie Galilee Diabetes SPHERE.

SPHERE - Social Precision-medicine Health Equity Research Endeavour – is a transdisciplinary research and implementation convergence of biological, medical, and social scientists and humanities for the advancement of health in the face of the challenge of diabetes and obesity in the Galilee.
