Mission Statement

JDRF's research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). As the global leader in the fight against T1D, JDRF's research programs are comprehensive -- addressing the hopes and dreams of every person with T1D for the best quality of life and a cure for this disease.

While JDRF focuses largely on type 1 diabetes, much of its research benefits those affected by both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.


JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is the largest charitable supporter of T1D research.For more than 40 years, JDRF has been a leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes, through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, we have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology.

But today, we realize that we are engaged in a process of curing type 1 diabetes - that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And we recognize that a part of our mission must be to help those living with type 1 today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until we arrive at the end of that path.

In addition, we understand that the word "juvenile" is no longer descriptive of the disease or those burdened with it. JDRF market research tells us that, today, 85 percent of those in the U.S with type 1 diabetes are adults. We must communicate that JDRF is an organization for ALL ages, and ALL stages of this disease.
