Welcome on the website of the Diabetes Lower Extremity Complication Research and Training Network in Foot Ulcer and Amputation Prevention (DIALECT).

DIALECT aims to combat diabetic foot disease through personalised medicine, by establishing an innovative, international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral research and training effort that will deliver the next generation of leading, entrepreneurial and creative scientists to reinforce the European innovative workforce.
