JDRF provides information for children, adults and parents living with type 1 diabetes.
JDRF gives a voice to people with type 1 diabetes and campaigns for increased focus on, and funding for, research to find the cure. JDRF is the world’s leading charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research.
“JDRF are supporting the BIRAX partnership because we believe this is an important opportunity for researchers and people with type 1 Diabetes .
Those with type 1 diabetes can no longer produce their own insulin. And therefore the BIRAX partnership, which is about regenerative medicine, including stem cell research, could enable a future mechanism of replacing these insulin producing cells.”
