Currently funded research

Diabetes Canada supports a robust research program. Since 1975, we've supported outstanding diabetes research in Canada and administered more than $140 million in research grants, awards and partnerships to scientists and clinicians across the country.

Our currently funded researchers are studying numerous aspects of diabetes and its prevention and care. From type 2 diabetes and obesity, to new coaching techniques for women with gestational diabetes, to the artificial pancreas and more innovative technologies for the treatment of type 1 diabetes, to foundational science and the study of beta cells, our funded researchers are working to improve the quality of life of people living with diabetes and to find a cure.
