JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. There is nothing you can do to prevent it, and there is no cure.
Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people — and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it — by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market and connecting and engaging the T1D community.
