Our research projects

We fund world class research

At any one time, we have around 120 research projects making discoveries across the UK. Each of these projects is only possible thanks to the generous support of our members, donors and local groups

Every project is reviewed by experts and approved by our research committee and our panel of people living with diabetes. So you're supporting research of the highest scientific quality, led by researchers with the skills and experience to succeed.

Your support of our research projects means we can keep tackling the complications of diabetes and bring us one step closer to a cure.

Project Summary

Blood clots are a key cause of heart attacks and strokes and are often more difficult to break down in people with diabetes. Dr Ramzi Ajjan will use state-of-the-art techniques to identify small proteins that could help to break clots down, and then test out their effects. This research could lead to new treatments that protect people with diabetes from life-threatening complications.
