We fund research that will cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes and its complications.
Our global programme funds more than 500 active research projects around the world and supports more than 70 clinical trials at any one time. Internationally, JDRF has invested more than £1.5 billion in research to date.
We focus on investing in research that will transform the lives of people with type 1 diabetes – improving treatments today until we find the cure.
This mission cannot be carried out in isolation, so we work with partner organisations to make sure we can change life with type 1 diabetes for the better as quickly as possible. But our most important partner is you – whether you help to fund the research, join a clinical trial or campaign for access to the new treatments that research delivers you are a vital member of our team.
Horizon 2020 underwrite guarantee update
Following the publication of the technical notice regarding the Horizon 2020 underwrite guarantee, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is now asking recipients of Horizon 2020 grants to input basic information about their awards into a bespoke portal. This will ensure that UKRI can keep UK researchers and businesses informed of the next steps if the government needs to underwrite Horizon 2020 payments. The new system was rolled out on 27 September 2018, follow this link to find out more this portal.
