Since 1975, we’ve supported outstanding diabetes research in Canada and provided more than $160 million in research grants, awards and partnerships to scientists across the country.
Since the discovery of insulin in Toronto in 1921, Canadian researchers have made huge strides and key advances in understanding diabetes. This is why, each year, we choose to fund Canada’s most renowned researchers in their quest for new and innovative developments in the prevention, treatment, management and cure for diabetes. The research is diverse in scope, covering a broad range of specialties and topics, and the underlying goal of each study remains the same—to create a world free of the effects of diabetes.
Every year, our researchers continue a tradition of innovation and discovery. Meet the researchers we are currently funding.
