Help shape research into diabetes

Scientists funded by Diabetes UK and JDRF are looking for people living with or connected to Type 1 diabetes to help them shape research and find the next big breakthrough. 

The Type 1 Diabetes Immunotherapy Consortium runs clinical trials for people with the condition. The Consortium advocates that people with direct experience of diabetes have the opportunity to input and help shape research. This is known as patient and public involvement (PPI), which can have a significant impact on the quality and success of a study. 

There are various ways you may be able to help, from giving your views on different aspects of research, reviewing information sheets and making sure it is clear, concise, plain English, to reviewing study design.  

Children, young people and adults with type 1 diabetes, as well as parents, carers and family members are all welcome to be involved. 

One-hour taster sessions are available throughout February – click here for dates and more information.
