Background
The goal of MGH Diabetes Center is to develop and implement innovative therapies that will benefit the lives of people with diabetes and to increase public awareness of this disease and ways to control it.

The unique organization of the MGH Diabetes Center, integrating both clinical and research activities, has helped make the Diabetes Center a recognized leader in this field. What is learned in the lab helps to improve patient care; what we learn from patients helps inform our research activities.

Your Support Can Make the Difference

The source of the funding for the clinical research activities in the MGH Diabetes Center has come almost entirely from NIH and foundation grants. This funding is ear-marked for specific projects and protocols, allowing little flexibility or opportunity to fund the type of innovative clinical research that the Diabetes Center aims to conduct and provide hope of significant advances.

Flexible funds to foster new initiatives, to support researchers who need the funds to pursue innovative approaches and research, are critically needed. Many of the exciting breakthroughs that occur in clinical research and lead to the development of new therapies require this type of initial backing, which is almost never available from government, corporate or foundation sources.
