Created in 2013 at the initiative of the Francophone Society of Diabetes (SFD) with the support of the French Federation of Diabetics, the Francophone Foundation for Diabetes Research (FFRD) has the unique goal of “promoting and supporting research on diabetes and metabolic diseases, particularly through public and private collaboration”.
The research projects supported by the Foundation therefore aim to better understand the epidemiology and the pathophysiology of diabetes and its complications, to assess the provision of treatment, to develop the basic research on the disease in order to achieve better management of diabetic patients.
After working full-time for 2 years, SFDT1 project, initiated by the SFD and promoted by the FFRD, is going to start after receiving the favorable opinion from the Institutional Review Board (IRB- CPP in French) on December 3rd 2019. The project is ambitious since it will include 15 000 persons living with a type 1 diabetes, who will be followed every 3 years for 30 years.
The financing of this ambitious national academic project is possible thanks to the very strong involvement of the SFD and industrial partners involved in the treatment of type 1 diabetes.
