JDRF's mission is to find a cure for diabetes 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.
Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has funded more than $1.5 billion in research. In FY2010 alone, JDRF provided more than $107 million for type 1 diabetes research.
More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
In FY2010, JDRF funded research projects in 19 countries, including more than 40 human clinical trials.
