Diabetes research

We are the UK’s leading charitable funder of diabetes research. We improve lives through pioneering research into all forms of diabetes and diabetes-related complications. The work we support helps us understand the causes of diabetes, bring about life-changing breakthroughs in care, treatment and prevention and bring us closer to a cure. In 2015 we invested over £6.8 million in diabetes research and agreed to support 33 new studies.
