Our Sole Focus: A Cure for Diabetes

Developing a Biological Cure

The DRI exists for one reason only: to cure diabetes. Our vision is to develop a biological cure by restoring natural insulin production and normalizing blood sugar levels without imposing other risks.

We pursue that goal with a sense of urgency that drives virtually everything we do.

• To accelerate research, we created the DRI Federation – a global network of leading diabetes researchers. Together with our research collaborators, we share ideas and results – and together move real progress forward and faster than ever before.

• We quickly test and evaluate new technologies and potential therapies in a state of-the-art environment, the Dr. Denise R. and Thomas D. Stern Fast Track Center for Testing.

• Our translational research approach moves promising research ideas from “bench to “bedside” (from the lab to the patient) exponentially faster than a traditional research environment. That’s because we have all three phases of research – basic, pre-clinical and clinical -- under one roof.

• We’re attacking the disease from multiple angles. Scientists from a variety of disciplines combine their expertise to overcome obstacles faster.

In short, if an idea shows great promise to help the patient, it moves forward – as quickly as possible. If it does not show this potential, we shift resources to projects that do.

We are committed to finding a cure in the fastest, safest, most efficient way possible.
