NIDDK Publishes Progress Report on the Special Statutory Funding Program for Type 1 Diabetes Research
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has published a progress report that highlights major scientific advances and future research opportunities made possible by the Special Statutory Funding Program for Type 1 Diabetes Research.
The program was established by Congress to support research into the understanding, prevention, treatment, and cure of type 1 diabetes. The report also describes the collaborative, long-term research efforts that can provide unprecedented new insights into type 1 diabetes. For example, The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) study is following more than 7,800 infants at high genetic risk for type 1 diabetes for 15 years to identify environmental triggers of the disease, which is critically important for developing prevention strategies.
The report is available at www2.niddk.nih.gov/AboutNIDDK/ReportsAndStrategicPlanning/T1DStatutoryFundingProgress2010.
Single printed copies of the report are free and can be ordered by mail, phone, or email by contacting the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse at 1 Information Way, Bethesda, MD 20892–3560, 1–800–860–8747, firstname.lastname@example.org.
