Diabetes and Hypoglycaemia: Start of Activities in 100. IMI-Project Hypo-RESOLVE
23 leading international players join forces to alleviate the burden of hypoglycaemia for people living with diabetes
For 10 years now, the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) has been working to improve health by speeding up the development of the next generation of medicines, particularly in areas with an unmet medical or social need. Not only is the initiative celebrating its 10th anniversary this year: The IMI press department has also announced the milestone of launching the 100th project in the form of Hypo-RESOLVE.
As an experienced partner within IMI-funded projects and part of the Hypo-RESOLVE coordination team, Eurice is very happy to contribute to the 100th IMI project which has been highlighted as exemplary in the related IMI press release:
"Worries about hypoglycaemia represent a serious psychological burden for people with diabetes. Despite its seriousness, little is known about hypoglycaemia. The Hypo-RESOLVE project aims to change that by adding to our understanding of the underlying causes of the condition, as well as its predictors and consequences. They will also analyse the financial costs of hypoglycaemia. Ultimately, the hope is that the project results will pave the way for new, better treatments for people with diabetes that will help them to maintain healthy blood sugar levels."
From May 16-17, 2018, the Hypo-RESOLVE consortium came together in Favrholm, Denmark, to outline and discuss planned activities and enter into dialogue with representatives of the Patient and Strategic Advisory Committees. As Hypo-RESOLVE is committed to interact closely with people living with diabetes, the Patient Advisors were invited to contribute an opening statement to the 85 participants of the meeting. The consortium partners will now take action in their dedicated work packages and reconvene in regular managing board meetings to discuss progress further during the months to come.
We are looking forward to an exciting and inspiring four years in Hypo-RESOLVE – and the next ten years of IMI!
