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!

    Well…are you going to register? I’m sure the researchers would find you a very interesting test subject! 🙂

    Ohh, I’m not sure. Last time I was a test subject I ended up being bitten by a radioactive tortoise. It wasn’t very nice, but I do now have the advantage of amazing super tortoise powers!

    Wish they spent the money on treatment first… too many young lives are lost that a pump and/or CGM may have saved : (
