Public participation and involvement in research

Type 1 diabetes research is not just a researchers’ affair. People with type 1 diabetes and those with a connection to type 1 diabetes should be included too. For research to benefit everybody, everybody should have the opportunity to take part. People from all ethnicities, ages, genders, sexual orientations, religions should be invited to take part.

Don’t know where to start? We created the people with lived experience participation, engagement and involvement in research page to help.

The page includes a few definitions, the benefits of involving people with lived experience, how JDRF can help and a selection of resources with practical tips.

Research resources

We support resources worldwide that are relevant to scientists working in the area of type 1 diabetes and their research. These include:

This list will be updated periodically, but if you would like any resources to be included, contact us at info@jdrf.org.uk.

JDRF reference documents

JDRF Grant Center website contains information for applicants and awardees, JDRF funded research and JDRF current research strategy.

We are driving to increase the amount of high quality type 1 diabetes research funded in the UK, and increase Government focus on type 1 diabetes. As part of these efforts, JDRF embarked on a project to draw a picture of all the type 1 diabetes research that was going on in the UK in 2013. This project allowed us to understand the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in UK research and identified the barriers to research progress. The result was our Type 1 Diabetes Research Roadmap, which you can read below, or download here.
