JDRF Donates $15 Million to Fund Edmonton Protocol Research

| Feb 1, 2002

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) of New York, New York, has awarded a $15 million grant to the University of Alberta in Alberta, Canada. The five-year grant will be used to open an additional clinical research center dedicated to furthering Edmonton Protocol research by addressing some of the problems associated with islet cell transplantation.

"The Edmonton Protocol was a major breakthrough in the path to finding a cure for diabetes," said Charles J. Queenan III, chair of research for the JDRF at the time of the announcement. "We hope that the development of this new clinical center will enable JDRF-funded researchers to make even further strides in understanding how islets can be used to cure type 1 diabetes."
