Imagine a Future without Diabetes

Imagine a future without diabetes. A future without constant finger pricks and needle sticks. Without dangerous glucose highs and lows. Without the risk of diabetes-associated blindenss, kidney disease, heart attacks, strokes or limb loss.

The American Diabetes Association is working to secure a future of continuous advancements in diabetes care. We do this by committing to a sustained investment in diabetes research. And we're able to make this commitment thanks to the generosity of donors who share our passion and our vision.

Since 1952, the American Diabetes Association has invested $807.4 million in more than 4,700 research projects that have helped change the face of how diabetes is treated today.

With these funds, diabetes researchers are hard at work for you. They dedicate their careers to improving health and saving lives. Their research is the path to a future free from diabetes and all its burdens.

Together, we can turn more of their idease into lifesaving discoveries.

The Research Programs 2017 Year in Review highlights the Association's research efforts and accomplishments for the year. It includes program outcomes and comprehensive portfolio information. The report also features research progress in key topic areas relevant to type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and complications.
