Diabetes research can’t happen without the help of people living with diabetes.
You can play a vital role by taking part in a research study or trial.
Scientists need your help to prevent diabetes, find new treatments, improve care, and ultimately, stop diabetes in its tracks.
But before new treatments can benefit people living with diabetes, they must be carefully tested to work out if they're safe, what the side effects are and whether they're better than treatments we already have. By volunteering to take part, you could play a crucial part in the fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.
You can get involved in research at any time, but did you know many clinical trials testing new treatments to stop Type 1 diabetes in its tracks can only recruit people within the first six months of their diagnosis?
- ADDRESS-2 is meeting the challenge and recruiting people with Type 1 diabetes to clinical trials pioneering new immunotherapies to slow or stop Type 1 in its tracks.
- The Type 1 diabetes Immunotherapy Consortium (T1D UK) brings together researchers from across the UK to run trials that develop and test new immunotherapies.
- TrialNet is an international network of leading academic institutions, scientists and healthcare teams dedicated to the prevention of Type 1 diabetes, by working with both people living with Type 1 diabetes and their families.
Whether it's a clinical trial, an interview or a questionnaire, research breakthroughs can only happen with your support.
We list opportunities for getting involved here. If you would like to take part in a clinical trial, you should always consult your healthcare team and speak to the healthcare professionals involved in the study.
All clinical trials are reviewed to ensure they are fair to participants and have the necessary ethical approval before advertising on this page.
