Donor-Directed Research Projects
An Association-funded research project that is "donor-directed" means that a very generous Pinnacle Society donor or donors have dedicated $1 Million or more to the Association's Research Foundation to start a diabetes scientific initiative in an area of their interest.
We greatly appreciate the dedication of our partners who have established donor-directed projects. Their contributions fund the research that incites watershed outcomes in all areas of diabetes science.
To learn more about how to create a donor-directed research project, please contact Elaine Curran at 1-800-676-4065 ext. 3413 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Previous donor-directed research projects include:
Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Distinguished Clinical Scientist Awards
