Scotland leads the way in Type 1 diabetes research
Diabetes UK and the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of the Scottish Government have today announced joint funding of over £675,000 to establish a major resource in Scotland for research into Type 1 diabetes. The “Scottish Diabetes Research Network (SDRN) Type 1 Diabetes Bioresource” will see the development of an invaluable data source for researchers and will lay down the foundation for many future diabetes studies worldwide. A key aim of the Bioresource project is to develop methods for preventing Type 1 diabetes and its associated complications.
This dog thinks further research into Type One is great. But it also would be quite pleased if Scotland bothered getting its (really) basic diabetic-care house in order before funding esoteric research. Maybe that’s just me. Woof!
