Growing international research, education and innovation – together

Working in partnership

Great applied research doesn’t happen in isolation.  As well as individuals, it needs the support of organisations, businesses and communities. If you are representing one of these groups and want to know how you could work with us, or support us, contact us now.

Research study collaboration

Our work is increasingly conducted in collaboration with other research teams and groups both within the UK and beyond.  By pooling skills and sharing knowledge, we believe our projects are stronger. If you have a proposal for a research collaboration that you think may interest us, we want to hear from you!  Use the ‘Get in touch’ page to tell us more.

Taking part in research

Interested in taking part in one of our active research projects?  Would you like us to tell you in advance about new projects? You will soon be able to contact our Study Recruitment Team here.

All our work is funded by competitive grants and fundraising.  Every donation helps us to make a difference to people with diabetes who need care now, supports better care for the next generation, and allows us to develop research to prevent diabetes in the future.
