Mission Statement

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, policy influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D. JDRF’s highest priority remains funding research to deliver a cure for T1D and its complications. At the same time, JDRF is also focused on developing better treatments that will transform the way people with T1D treat the disease today, in order to help them live healthier lives now and in the future. Finally, JDRF also seeks to prevent T1D, to keep future generations from developing the disease.

Description

JDRF-funded research has led to many landmark advances in T1D science. JDRF is in the exciting position of taking that research knowledge and translating it into real therapies that will make life-changing differences for those facing the daily challenges of T1D, funding more than 50 human clinical trials. We strategically partner with industry, government, foundations, academia, healthcare insurers, and clinicians to ensure that JDRF and its partners are working toward a common goal of a world without T1D. JDRF’s advocacy efforts help support a variety of issues that are critical to JDRF achieving its research objectives. JDRF’s outreach efforts provide practical support and resources for people with T1D and their families every step of the way. JDRF has always been dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of efficiency to ensure that our time, resources, and dollars can achieve the greatest possible impact on the lives of people with T1D.
