Our Mission / Objective

Research is underway in Australia and across the world to find a cure for diabetes and to inform clinical guidelines. The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation complements this work. The Foundation’s research program enables people living with diabetes and their diabetes care team to work together to identify questions, find answers and use this new knowledge to support people as they work hard every day to live well with their diabetes.

Our Services

The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation facilitate the following funding activities: 


 


 


 











        1. Research grants: designed for researchers, academics and student researchers from Australian universities and research institutes who are working with CDEs and people with diabetes on research projects that aim to improve diabetes care, management and education










 


 


 











        1. Research fellowships: designed for ADEA members and offering a one-year postgraduate fellowship, with the aim of developing capacity in research and evidence-based practice.










 


 

Our Beneficiaries

Diabetes is the most significant chronic disease and is associated with most other chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, renal and liver disease and sensory changes that affect function and quality of life. Many strategies for managing diabetes and its complications, their consequences and the associated challenges originate in quality research.


 


 


 


The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation supports and promotes quality research into the key issues that affect diabetes education and care. Research is an integral part of the diabetes educator role and is important to demonstrate the value of diabetes educators and diabetes education to outcomes for people with diabetes.

The Facts


 


An estimated 1.7 million Australians have diabetes. It is our fastest growing chronic illness. Approximately 100,000 Australians developed diabetes in the past year alone.


 


People with diabetes work hard every day to live well and avoid serious complications. For every person diagnosed with diabetes, there is usually a family member or carer in a support role. This dramatically increases the number of people impacted by diabetes.


 


An Answer


 


The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation brings together researchers, clinicians, carers and people with diabetes to find high quality, practical and innovative solutions for living well with diabetes every day. This research is unique as it complements work already underway in Australia to find a cure for diabetes. Research outcomes will be shared widely across the community to help policy makers, service managers and other researchers as well as consumers and clinicians.


 


We seek your donation to fund research that helps improve the lives of people with diabetes.
