Diabetes Research Connection General Fund 2017
General Fund donations are critical for the Diabetes Research Connection (DRC) to operate our innovative platform which supports credible, early-stage diabetes research. Your donation helps early-career scientists get their ideas off the ground by providing funds to conduct peer-reviewed research designed to prevent, cure and better care for those with type 1 diabetes.
General Funds, after reasonable reserves, may be used to complete funding for projects which are short of their goal. DRC’s operating costs are kept as low as possible and are targeted to be 10% of gross revenue.
100% of the funds designated for research go directly to the scientists’ labs.
Since 2014, DRC has raised a total of $560,000 for new diabetes research.
Twelve projects have been fully funded.

Thank you very much for your contribution to our peer-reviewed research projects as well as our General Fund! With your help, the researchers on our website will add to the body of diabetes knowledge and help end this disease.
