Pediatric Diabetes

The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of Minnesota is very active in type 1 diabetes clinical research. We hope this research leads us to a cure for type 1 diabetes. As a patient at the University, we want you and your family to be aware of our current research studies as there may be studies you would like to participate in. While we encourage you to consider participating, if you wish not to participate, the doctors, nurses, and staff will still treat you the same.

Our studies focus on all stages of type 1 diabetes from pre-diagnosis to newly diagnosed individuals to those who have been diagnosed for many years. View our current research study opportunities
