Diabetes Research: Finding a Cure
The USF Diabetes Center is an international leader in Type 1 diabetes research. Our program’s goals are to help families with type 1 diabetes by investigating ways to prevent onset of the disease, to identify at-risk individuals years before clinical symptoms occur and to test cutting edge new therapies for those living with T1D.
In addition to its role participating in T1D research, the USF Diabetes Center is a global leader in the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet research consortium as one of twenty TrialNet Clinical Centers worldwide.
The USF Diabetes Center also offers a number of research opportunities to individuals living with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) with a focus on developing new therapies for children and adolescents with T2D.
