Our goal at Diabetes Research WA is to find the answers to diabetes and enhance the daily lives of those living with the condition.
Approximately 285 Australians develop diabetes every day – that’s over 100,000 people every year, enough to fill the Melbourne Cricket Ground! Diabetes is one of the most challenging chronic conditions in Australia and the number of people diagnosed is increasing at an alarming rate.
Research helps us understand diabetes, why it develops, who is at risk and how to prevent complications from developing. By investing in research, we can work towards a world without diabetes, and along the way discover treatments that can greatly enhance the daily lives of those living with the condition.
In recent years Diabetes Research WA has awarded two annual research grants, however in the current economic environment for not-for-profit organisations, a prudent decision has been made to offer one grant for 2023. Notwithstanding this, the Board of DRWA reserves the right to exercise its discretion to award more than one research grant in this round should circumstances justify.
Our goal at Diabetes Research WA (DRWA) is to find the answers to diabetes and alter the future of those affected by or at risk of developing it. Not only is the search for a cure – or cures – vital; additionally, we must ensure people living with diabetes can live long and healthy lives with the least impact or complications.
Currently, our research efforts are focusing on:
With world-class research and institutions collaborating around the world, we have a real opportunity to change the future for all of us.
When you donate to Diabetes Research WA today, you’ll be directly helping a person living with diabetes now – while contributing to a future where no one longer lives with this challenging condition. Whatever you can give to our researchers will be gratefully accepted.
