DRIF: Providing Vital Support











The Driving Force

Funding from the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is the driving force that allows DRI scientists to pursue new, innovative ideas -- and, to speed these discoveries to patients.

Scientists at the DRI say having this diabetes foundation as a steady funding source is unique for a research center -- and makes a critical difference.

The DRI Foundation provides vital support in four key areas.

The Foundation gives the funding to immediately begin work on promising ideas.

With preliminary results in hand, researchers can then apply for outside, competitive funding. This evaluation process – called “peer review” -- can take up to a year. During this process, DRI scientists remain funded by the Foundation and can continue to advance their work.

While researchers may receive grant support for their projects, rarely is the grant large enough to cover all costs. Again, the support of the Foundation allows scientists to pursue various research avenues.

Patient-based studies, often the most expensive phases of testing. Historically, fewer grant dollars have been available for this stage. DRIF dollars make the biggest difference here, especially since these studies are critical in the search for a cure.
