ABOUT JDRF
Accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D. T1Dis an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. And, at present, there is no cure.

Every dollar we put toward research comes from donations. So when you support JDRF with your time, talent, voice and, yes, your money, you enable us to advance even more research.

There are many ways to join the JDRF family, but for 45 years there has been only one reason—because we are the organization that will turn   Type One into Type None .
