The podcast series ‘Postdocs Talking – from Research to Society’ focuses on how academic researchers can build bridges between science and several important sectors of society.
The topics of this series are: language when engaging people with diabetes, funding for research, innovation and its relation to industry, policy-making, education and social media, and art in scientific representation.
Listen, as motivated postdocs and experts discuss the challenges and solutions within each topic.
The concept for ‘Postdocs Talking – from Research to Society’ was born at the 2021 Danish Diabetes Academy Winter School for Postdocs.

Language, when used right, has a huge potential to improve the health outcomes of people with diabetes…
There is a clear need to re-evaluate how funding is distributed, but how could a Fair Funding Framework be structured?
Ideas are often birthed in academia, while the tools for development lie within industry. How can we bridge the two?
To make a difference as scientists, we need to learn how to reach policy makers with our research findings.
The scientific community faces great challenges as well as great opportunities in reaching the public through social media.
How can we as scientists enhance interest in our research by utilizing a more artful approach instead of the usual graphs?
The podcast series ‘Postdocs Talking – From Science to Society’ highlights experts in diabetes and metabolism research with Nordic ties, whose work connects to a societal perspective.
The topics of this series are: diabetes in sub-Saharan Africa, elite athletes with type 1 diabetes, glucagon, fat tissue and obesity, and open science.
Join us for a journey into the world of science, as motivated experts raise important questions on the route to societal implementation.

What happens with a child during pregnancy when the mother has malaria? Could malaria during pregnancy even cause diabetes in the child later in life?
Can people living with type 1 diabetes rise to elite levels in sports? And if so, what does it take to get there?
Might glucagon help us understand diabetes better? And what are the challenges with studying this largely unexplored hormone?
Why does one person gain weight differently than another? What are the molecular events that dictate fat tissue function, and how can we use this information to narrow the gap between lab bench and disease prevention?
The open science train has already left the station, but how do we get everyone on board? Perhaps the road to systemic change is paved with incremental change?
How far do you live from a healthcare clinic? Around the corner or across the country?
Nowadays science is often driven by patterns in big data. What can we learn from the data and how does finding patterns help us understand chronic diseases better? And, where do we start?
AI is dramatically changing the landscape of drug discovery in research today, but what is needed for the best outcomes? How do we overcome the challenges? Can we rely on what AI produces?
Did you know that having diabetes can affect sexual function? It can even cause erectile dysfunction (ED). And, for a proportion of people living with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, drugs like Viagra have little to no effect.
How many child development issues go unnoticed in the flurry of short doctor's appointments and limited home visits? How do you properly detect and identify mental health issues in adolescents living with chronic disease?
Did you know that half a million children die every year of a completely treatable disease? Can you imagine what it would be like to be pregnant or have children in a low-income country where this disease is prevalent?
Series three of ‘Postdocs Talking’ presents the current state of academic research and highlights solutions developed by early career researchers seeking to enhance the impact and improve research dissemination.
The topics in this series include scientific impact, research funding and dissemination of research findings.
Join us as we, the next generation of research leaders, imagine the future of science and how we can positively impact society.

Is the scientific publication, as we know it, dead?
This was the central question behind the theme for this year’s DDEA Postdoc Summit Challenge.
