ABOUT US

We grant up to $50,000 to support each research project.

The Diabetes Research Connection is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in San Diego, California. Established in 2012 by five tireless proponents of diabetes research, our mission is to connect donors with early-career scientists enabling them to perform peer-reviewed, novel research designed to prevent and cure type 1 diabetes, minimize its complications and improve the quality of life for those living with the disease.

One out of every hundred Americans has type 1 diabetes. Millions of children and adults struggle with this autoimmune disease. Despite these numbers, funding for diabetes research has declined. Of the funding available, 97% goes to established scientists.

Scientific breakthroughs often emerge due to the inventiveness of early-career scientists. Albert Einstein revealed his theory of general relativity at 26. Banting & Best discovered insulin before they turned 33. Imagine our world today if these scientists had not received funding for their research?

Why should you donate

100% of your donation for research goes directly to the scientists.

Millions of children, and adults, struggle with type 1 diabetes.  Despite this, diabetes research funding has decreased for research to prevent, cure, and better manage the disease. What diabetes funding is available generally goes to established scientists.

Scientists starting out in diabetes research, also known as early-career scientists, have a difficult time finding money to support their innovative ideas. The Diabetes Research Connection created a platform connecting donors directly with early-career scientists, enabling them to perform peer-reviewed diabetes research designed to prevent and cure type 1 diabetes, minimize its complications and improve the quality of life for those living with the disease.

Join us and influence the future of diabetes research. You choose the project you want to support, the one you believe will help solve the diabetes puzzle that has plagued millions of people.
