November is Diabetes Awareness month, and a time to elevate the dialogue about how this disease affects millions of people across the world. For those living with and managing the disease every day, a world free from the pain and suffering of diabetes is the ultimate dream.
While there are many organizations that raise awareness about diabetes, the Diabetes Research Institute is unique in its singular focus on a cure. Our dedication to curing diabetes now is a testament to the belief that tomorrow is not soon enough to cure those living with diabetes.
The DRI has always been and continues to be a strong voice for translational research, ensuring that promising findings in the lab are applied to patients in the fastest, safest and most efficient way possible. This long-standing philosophy drives its collaborative, fast-track approach to advancing cutting-edge disciplines that have a real potential to deliver a cure, like tissue engineering, nanotechnology, immune-modulation, biomaterials, cellular reprogramming, and regenerative medicine, among others. Its singular focus on a cure, along with the integration of technology and medicine, is what makes the DRI unique and distinguishes its research efforts from all others.
Clinical trials – moving exciting DRI research from the laboratory to people living with diabetes – represent a significant step forward in the DRI’s search for a biological cure. It is an exciting time at the DRI, as scientists gear up for four new clinical trials:
It is through these clinical trials that DRI scientists will learn more about this complex disease, with a specific focus on tacking the complex challenges of the immune system. These trials represent the culmination of many years of research, and will bring us one step closer to a cure.
