Our diabetes research

Everything we know about diabetes - every drug, device and development has only been possible because of research. And, one day, research will find a cure.  

We’re the UK’s leading charitable funder of diabetes research. For 87 years, our research has been behind some of the biggest leaps forward in diabetes care and changed lives for the better.  

Today, our scientists are relentlessly pushing for the next treatment breakthrough and speeding up progress towards a cure. Your support allows us to fund it and by listening to you, we deliver research that makes the biggest possible impact.
