The Centre invites all Australians living with diabetes to raise their collective voice and get involved in diabetes research. We also encourage healthcare professionals and carers and family members of people with diabetes to take part in studies where appropriate. This page is updated regularly providing details of forthcoming research opportunities.
The Centre would love to hear your feedback about the research you have taken part in and suggestions for future research. Contact us.
