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.

Patient and Public Participation or Involvement in Research

We can help researchers with participation, engagement and involvement by reaching out to our supporters or advertising studies. To ensure consistency and to determine the suitability of our involvement, JDRF has established a process to help guide our decisions about advertising research studies and surveys.

Could you please provide the following documents to researchcommunications@jdrf.org.uk:

– the study protocol (what you have submitted to gain ethical approval)
– the draft participant information sheet (as submitted to gain ethical approval or as approved)
– any draft survey/questionnaire in word/pdf format (if applicable)
– the Research Ethics Committee approval (as soon as it is obtained)
– the number of participants you are looking to recruit
– the deadline to recruit them by
– a short “advertising” text, a link to your study/survey and an image that we could use on our social media channels?

Once we have reviewed these documents, we will be able to confirm if we can advertise the study.

If it is approved, we will request that feedback is provided to the participants and that the results of the study are shared with JDRF. We also request acknowledgement of JDRF support. Please refer to JDRF as “JDRF, the type 1 diabetes research charity”.

Patient and Public Involvement in Clinical Research

We can also help researchers recruit people with type 1 diabetes to take part in clinical research and we are one of the ten charity partners for the UK Clinical Trials Gateway.

JDRF Reference Documents

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

JDRF is 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.
