At present there is no cure for diabetes. Scientists and researchers around the world are actively working on a cure. As an organisation, Diabetes Australia directly supports diabetes research through our research program and strategic partnerships. We provide funding towards the prevention, management and cure of diabetes, as well as enabling and fostering young and upcoming researchers in the field of diabetes research.

The Diabetes Australia Research Program has invested $29 million in 440 diabetes research projects across Australia over the past ten years. This year the Diabetes Australia Research Program should provide around $3.6 million to vital diabetes research projects across Australia. All the research funds are held in trust with over 90% of donations going directly toward research grants.
