WHAT we do

JDRF's mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF is also committed to developing new and better treatments that improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes in the near term and keep them healthy while we advance toward a cure.

WHO we are

In the 40 years since we were founded, JDRF-funded research has advanced type 1 diabetes-related science significantly. We are the global leader in driving the translation of research progress into better treatments and an eventual cure for people with type 1 diabetes. We are on the cusp of tangible advances that will change the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.

WHY we do it

We want to improve the lives of people living with diabetes today by developing better treatments for the disease, and ultimately finding a cure!
