SMF Type 1 Diabetes Grand Challenge
We’re partnering with JDRF and the Steve Morgan Foundation (SMF) to fund research that will drive breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes treatments and lead the race towards a cure.
Steve and Sally Morgan’s £50 million donation is the largest single philanthropic gift ever made in the UK for diabetes research.
It will mean we can bring together research dream teams to work on bigger and bolder ideas. The goal is to develop new treatments and pave the way to a cure for type 1 diabetes which affects 400,000 people in the UK.
The SMF Type 1 Diabetes Grand Challenge will call on scientists to come up with innovative and collaborative projects in three research areas, which you can read about below.
If you’re a researcher, we’ll be sharing more information about the calls which are expected to open later in 2022.
