Our research team is dedicated to achieving this goal through research efforts that that span basic science, animal studies, and clinical trials. Our team is internationally recognized for its exceptional contributions to improving our understanding of the natural history of type 1 diabetes, developing strategies to prevent and reverse the disease, the use of artificial pancreas technologies, and the use of novel ways to educate patients and providers in diabetes management. In addition, our group is internationally known for expertise and development of novel treatments for Prader-Willi Syndrome.

The UF Diabetes Institute offers many studies encompassing a wide range of disciplines and specialties related to the physiology, pathogenesis and treatment of diabetes, as well as its complications, and translation of new knowledge to the clinic and the community.
These studies are aimed at finding ways to prevent type 1 diabetes. Reserachers are looking for at-risk T1D individuals. Individuals can be screened for T1D risk through TrialNet at UF.
UF researchers are working to delay and ultimately stop the onset of diabetes by evaluating new approaches to prevent or ameliorate the disease in its earliest stage to optimize the potential for successful treatment.
Research studies range from preserving insulin producing cells, to targeted treatment therapies that aim to alter or slow-down the progression of the disease.
