Did you know?
The University of Florida is internationally recognized as one of the leading centers investigating the natural history, prediction and prevention of type 1 diabetes, and serves as a primary coordinating hub for two research programs :
- Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet is an international consortium of centers dedicated to the study, prevention, early detection and treatment of type 1 diabetes. The TrialNet at UF team offers screenings to individuals and relatives at risk for the disease that can identify risk factors for the disease up to 10 years before symptoms appear. The team also oversees 17 TrialNet affiliate research sites across the nation.
- UF supports over 150 diabetes researchers worldwide through the Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors with Diabetes project. Established in 2006, UF’s biorepository provides high-resolution pancreas tissue samples from organ donors who lived with diabetes to investigators around the world; affording teams the unique ability to conduct studies related to the origin of T1D in humans that would otherwise be inaccessible.
