Read A word from the President of the FFRD


The Francophone Society of Diabetes (SFD) is setting up a cohort of patients with type 1 diabetes with the support of the Francophone Foundation for Diabetes Research (FFRD), which will be the promoter.
This project is ambitious since it should include 15,000 patients, with a follow up every 3 hears for 9 years.
The funding for this ambitious national project will be achievable in part thanks to industry partners involved in the traitment of type 1 diabetes.
The companies Ely Lilly, Sanofi et Air Liquide are already involved but others are interested and should join us soon.
