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, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.

Description

JDRF-funded research has led to many landmark advances in T1D science. JDRF is now 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. Currently, JDRF is funding more than 50 human clinical trials, several of which are in the advanced stages of clinical testing needed before FDA approvals can be sought.

JDRF’s influence and leadership extends beyond funding research. We strategically partner with industry, governments, foundations, academia, healthcare insurers, and clinicians to ensure that JDRF and its partners are aligned and 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. Our focus includes increased government funding for T1D research and a regulatory environment that allows people with T1D to benefit from potential new therapies and devices as quickly and safely as possible. Finally, JDRF’s outreach efforts provide practical support and resources for people with T1D and their families every step of the way as they live with T1D.
