We Are Research Leaders
Since 1952, the American Diabetes Association's investment of nearly $770 million in more than 4,600 diabetes research projects has contributed significantly to advances in diabetes care and reductions in diabetes complications, allowing people with diabetes to live longer, healthier lives.
With generous contributions from philanthropic supporters, the American Diabetes Association will continue to support critical diabetes research, accelerating progress toward prevention, better treatments, better care, and ultimate cures.
In 2016 alone, the Association made more than $34.5 million available for research, supporting 378 research projects performed by 351 investigators at 150 leading academic research institutions across the U.S.
