Research Programs

Discovery Research Programs

The BBDC’s five Discovery Research Programs fill critical gaps in finding novel therapies to cure or treat diabetes. In bringing together world class researchers from multiple disciplines, they are focused on taking on highly innovative, high risk research questions.  They include research programs that support our strategic priorities of curing diabetes and eliminating diabetic complications.

Applied Research Programs

The Applied Research Programs span the enormous chasm between the known evidence of what interventions positively impact diabetes, and what occurs in the domain of the practical.  Here we bring together incredible assets that already exist in diabetes knowledge translation and population health research in order to accelerate innovations that can markedly improve the lives of those living with diabetes.
