American Diabetes Association Research Efforts 

The ADA supports research aimed at preventing, treating, and curing diabetes. Our Research Funding program is designed to complement the National Institutes of Health (NIH) diabetes research program by supporting new investigators and new research ideas. With support from ADA, investigators are often able to prove that their ideas are solid enough to get more substantial funding from the United States federal government. The ADA supports three researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
