The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), based in the United States, is the leading global organisation funding research into a cure for, and treatment and prevention of, type 1 diabetes (T1D). In addition to funding a wide range of research worldwide, the JDRF regularly sponsors research-related education programmes.
The Conference Grants are awarded for proposals solicited from those in need of financial support in order to run workshops, scientific meetings and conferences relevant to the JDRF's mission. Activities can be located anywhere in the world, and preference will be given to those which address areas of particular importance to JDRF's research priorities, including, but not limited to:
- Beta Cell Replacement: A beta cell replacement product capable of delivering insulin independence for at least 1 year with no chronic immunosuppression therapy.
- Beta Cell Regeneration and Survival: Drugs or biologics that promote the survival, health, and function of beta cells for all stages (at-risk, new onset, established) of T1D. Drugs or biologics that restore functional beta cells to achieve insulin independence in established T1D.
- Beta Cell Autoantigen-Specific Immune Therapies: Vaccines, drugs or biologics that induce or restore durable beta cell-specific immune tolerance; preventing disease progression in people at risk or in the earliest stages of T1D and preserving residual and regenerated beta cells after disease onset and in established T1D.
- Prevention of Type 1 Diabetes: Prevention of onset of beta cell-specific autoimmunity or symptomatic disease in individuals at-risk of developing T1D.
- Artificial Pancreas Device Systems: Artificial pancreas systems with increasing automation that improve/restore glucose regulation with significant reduction in HbA1c, significant reduction in hypoglycemia, and improved quality of life.
- Glucose Modulating Agents: Drug based approaches that improve/restore glucose regulation with significant reduction in HbA1c, significant reduction in hypoglycemia, and improved quality of life.
- Diabetic Kidney and Eye Complications Therapies: Agents that prevent, arrest and reverse diabetic kidney and diabetic eye disease.
This funding is not intended to provide support for an individual to attend a conference or equivalent.
