Type 1 Diabetes Special Funding Program

From fiscal year 1998 through fiscal year 2008, the special funding program provides a total of $1.14 billion in research funds to support type 1 diabetes research. The special funds are being applied to meet unmet needs and pursue compelling opportunities in type 1 diabetes research. The program is coordinated by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, and the program planning and implementation involves several other Institutes of the National Institutes of Health, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and the American Diabetes Association.

In April 2003, the NIDDK published a "Report on Progress and Opportunities: Special Statutory Funding for Type 1 Diabetes Research." The report describes the recent achievements, the ongoing collaborative projects, and future opportunities in type 1 diabetes research made possible through the special program.
