Type 1 Diabetes Grand Challenge
Diabetes UK, JDRF and the Steve Morgan Foundation have joined together to fund research that will drive breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes treatments and lead the race towards a cure
Steve and Sally Morgan’s £50 million donation is the largest single philanthropic gift ever made in the UK for diabetes research.
It will mean we can bring together research dream teams to work on bigger and bolder ideas. The goal is to develop new treatments and pave the way to a cure for type 1 diabetes which affects around 400,000 people in the UK.
