International Diabetes Federation awards $2 million to 9 global diabetes research projects
Date:2/10/2010

Nine new diabetes research projects will be funded for a total of US$2 million over the next three years as part of the International Diabetes Federation's (IDF) translational research grant programme, BRIDGES.

A total of 157 applications were considered for the second round of funding. The chosen projects address important issues in primary and secondary prevention of diabetes in different parts of the world.

"BRIDGES is a key programme for IDF's work and mission. The support of translational research projects is critical in a world facing various global health challenges, including diabetes," said IDF President Jean Claude Mbanya.

"Just like the first phase, this round of the programme has a true global impact. The research carried out will have far reaching implications in Austria, China, Colombia, Haiti, India, the Philippines, South Africa and the US," Prof Mbanya added.

The projects focus on topics such as lifestyle intervention to prevent type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, peer support, foot inspection for the visually impaired and the impact of motivational interviewing.
