Meet some of the people who are working hard to make a cure happen.
Inside a Diabetes Lab How will we find a cure for diabetes? Through research, such as that of Dr. Ann Marie Schmidt and her team at JDRF's Center for Complications at Columbia University in New York. Step inside their laboratory for an amazing behind-the-scenes look at science in progress.
The View from Research Scientist and Endocrinologist Dr. Allen Spiegel is director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. JDRF kid reporter Caroline Rowley asked him what it's like to be a diabetes researcher and when he thinks there will be a cure.
Getting Answers At JDRF's 2003 Children's Congress, kids had a chance to ask top science officials tough questions about stem cell research and finding a cure for diabetes. Caroline Rowley was there to cover this exciting "town hall meeting."
So You Want to Find a Cure It takes a natural curiosity, the ability to keep trying, even in the face of rejection, and creative thinking about problems to become a diabetes researcher. Hard work and good grades also help!
