Type 1 Research Today is a report that presents a positive picture of type 1 diabetes research in the UK. Many funders are engaged in supporting type 1 diabetes research, and UK researchers are making significant contributions to global progress in treating, preventing and ultimately curing type 1 diabetes.
To ensure that type 1 research continues to play a strong role in making the UK a leader in medical research, every effort should be made to ensure that this healthy ecosystem of funding opportunities remains strong and protected.
London, Cambridge and Oxford do not dominate the type 1 research space in the same way as in other conditions. This not only provides a more diverse talent pool to work on type 1, but should also mean that people with type 1 will have opportunities to engage in research wherever they live in the UK.
We need to ensure that type 1 research in the UK remains cutting edge and that we are training the next generation of researchers to tackle type 1 diabetes.
Our vision of a world free of type 1 diabetes is not yet reality. There is still a great deal more work to do in laboratories, hospitals, board rooms and debating chambers to make that dream come true. And whoever we are, we can each take steps to bring the day we consign type 1 to the history books closer.

The Type 1 Research Today report was made possible by a generous individual gift from JDRF Patrons James and Margaret Cripps.
