From time to time, Diabetes UK makes calls for research in a specific area of diabetes. Details of these calls will be posted online, and advertised in Diabetes UK publications and scientific and medical press, as they arise.
In the past, Diabetes UK have had targeted research calls in the following areas:
- Improving the day to day management of diabetes;
- Novel interventions for complications of diabetes;
- Overcoming barriers to good diabetes care and/or supported self-management
- Very low calorie diets;
- Immunotherapeutic approaches for the prevention or treatment of Type 1 diabetes.
Things to consider
When applying for a grant please make sure that you read our grant conditions and intellectual property and revenue-sharing agreement. Please make sure that all applicants and the involved institutions are able to agree to accept and adhere to the grant conditions and intellectual property and revenue-sharing agreement before making your application.
Involving people with diabetes
Diabetes UK is committed to reflecting the views of people living with diabetes in our decision-making processes. As such, the Grants Advisory Panel (GAP), a panel of people with diabetes and their carers review all project and early-career small grant applications. GAP do not at present review fellowship or studentship applications.
We believe that involving people affected by diabetes at all stages of research produces higher quality, more relevant research. The research application guidelines have been produced in collaboration with GAP. We recommend that;
• Applicants obtain the perspective of people affected by the condition when developing their application, to help guarantee the best chance of success;
• Applicants ensure the application has been reviewed by people living with diabetes.
