BAR HARBOR — The next MDI Science Cafe, “Chronic Kidney Disease: The Hidden Danger of Diabetes,” will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11 at the Maine Center for Biomedical Innovation, 159 Old Bar Harbor Rd. Hermann Haller, M.D., president of the MDI Biological Laboratory, will give the talk.

Haller will discuss diabetes as a risk factor for CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD); current treatments options; recent advances, including the contributions of the MDI Biological Laboratory; and efforts to address the limitations of current therapies — dialysis and kidney transplant — through the development of artificial organs.
