Views of researchers working in diabetes wanted for study on priorities in type 1 diabetes research.

Researchers in Ireland are looking for the top 10 research priorities in type 1 diabetes.

Views are wanted for a survey they hope will help to identify the most pressing areas of research into the condition.

The survey is organised by researchers at the University Hospital Galway.

Pedar Rooney, Network Program Manager at Diabetes Clinical Trial Network, said: We are currently in the second phase of the Diabetes Type 1 Priorities Survey, which seeks to establish the top 10 research priorities for this condition.

“Your participation in this survey will help ensure that the voices of experts like yourself are heard in determining the direction of future research efforts. By ranking the identified priorities, we can focus resources and attention on areas that hold the greatest potential for improving outcomes and quality of life for individuals living with type 1 diabetes.

“Moreover, we kindly ask for your support in sharing this survey with your colleagues, professional networks and patients who may also contribute valuable perspectives to this endeavour. By spreading the word, we can engage a broader community of experts and enhance the richness of insights gathered.

“The survey will only take a short amount of your time, yet its impact will contribute to shaping research agendas, guiding funding decisions, and ultimately, making a difference in the lives of those affected by type 1 diabetes.

“Thank you in advance for considering this invitation and for your willingness to share the survey with others. Your participation and support are instrumental in our collective effort to address the challenges faced by individuals with type 1 diabetes. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on the future of diabetes research.”

NOTE: DRWF will from time-to-time advise readers of ‘calls to participate’ in diabetes and related health research studies. It should not necessarily be considered that the charity is in any way connected to the study or the group issuing the call for participants. If we are involved in any way, we will make this known. We will only share external calls where we have confirmed that the study holds ethics committee approval, and the study is specific to diabetes and related health. Taking part in a medical research study is a big step and further helpful information can be found via the National Institute for Health and Care Research Clinical Trials Guide.
