JDRF’s Top Ten Advances of 2023

We have many reasons to celebrate in the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community and we are so grateful. In 2023, JDRF made tremendous progress in accelerating cures, improving lives, and advocating for people with T1D and their loved ones. Your support of JDRF’s efforts is inseparable from the remarkable strides we’ve seen. Thank you! Read about JDRF’s Top Ten Advances of 2023.

What Drug Will Be the Next Tzield?

Last year, Tzield became the first disease-modifying therapy (DMT) approved for T1D. JDRF’s DMT pipeline is stocked with other therapies that have the potential to join it as an approved therapy in the US and worldwide. This blog highlights eight DMTs, including one that is FDA-approved for those at risk for developing T1D. Read now.

New Year’s Resolution: Become a JDRF Advocate!

JDRF Advocates help build and sustain critical support for T1D research funded by the Federal Government by raising awareness among Members of Congress of the financial, medical and emotional costs of the disease. This is your chance to use your voice and take action! Learn more about policies and programs that impact the T1D community and join the movement at jdrf.org/advocacy.
