The Dutch health organisations Foundation DON and the Dutch Diabetes Research Foundation are joining forces to cure type 1 diabetes in the program Unite2CureType1.

Together, we aim to support research at the frontiers of science, in order to reach promising solutions for patients with type 1 diabetes. The international program Unite2CureType1 aims to encourage scientists to think outside the box, initiate (new) international collaborations and come up with innovative basic research ideas that have the potential to ultimately prevent or cure and thus change the lives of people with type 1 diabetes. The research must be focused on working towards the patient.
