The UF Diabetes Institute is internationally recognized as a leader in efforts to predict, prevent, and ultimately cure Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. More than two decades of research have laid the groundwork to better predict who may contract the disease and reverse symptoms.

With support from the National Institutes of Health, JDRF and other funding agencies, the center is able to conduct cutting-edge research and utilizes state-of-the-art diabetes management technologies. Since inception, approximately 2,500 people have participated in one or more of the UF Diabetes Institute’s innovative clinical trials and/or studies. The institute’s clinical team currently provides comprehensive care for more than 1,000 children and youth with diabetes as well as adults throughout the United States, in addition to providing education seminars throughout the year to health professionals on important diabetes wellness and prevention efforts.
