Research partnerships are a great way for us to pool our resources and maximise funding for type 1 diabetes research. Partnering with research organisations that aren’t directly focused on type 1 diabetes encourages more researchers into the field of type 1 diabetes research. These researchers bring with them new skills and expertise, which they share with other type 1 diabetes researchers. This helps to boost the knowledge within our field and expands the range of innovative research taking place.
We have teamed up with other organisations who can help us in our mission of eradicating type 1 diabetes. This includes promoting type 1 diabetes research in Ireland through our partnership with the Diabetes Ireland Research Alliance, and driving research into cures for type 1 diabetes through the Type 1 Diabetes Grand Challenge. We are also searching beyond the field of diabetes research to find the overlapping causes of autoimmunity across multiple autoimmune conditions through our Connect Immune Research partnership.
As well as our ongoing partnerships with other organisations, we provide grants to people which we co-fund with other organisations. These include government organisations like the National Institute for Health and Care Research as well as trusts such as the Daphne Jackson Trust.
For example, we have joined forces with the Medical Research Council to fund a clinician called Daniel Doherty to complete his PhD at the University of Manchester. His research aims to improve the outcome of islet transplants for people with type 1. Find out more about Daniel’s PhD research project.
All our research partnerships help the money our supporters like you raise for type 1 diabetes go even further. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to leverage our donations in this way. Donate to JDRF today to continue to support our research.
Learn about our partnership with ten other research organisations who focus on autoimmune conditions, with a common goal of understanding the causes of autoimmunity.
