We are delighted to announce a successful funding bid totalling $8.25 million (AUD) which is collaboratively provided by JDRF Australia and The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

Now that the Study has completed recruitment of 1500 participants, this money will be used to continue to follow-up these children for a further 3 years.

Our youngest participant is due to be born in August 2020, so we look forward to the visit when this little person turns two years old!

It is our sincere hope that we can continue to follow this cohort of children for as long as possible to find the causes of type 1 diabetes. If we can identify a cause, we can then work to prevent the condition from developing in the future.
