The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) is partnering with Sanford Health in an innovative “cure collaboration” to accelerate type 1 diabetes research and the delivery of a cure. In the initial phase, Sanford Health will fund a three-year JDRF grant which will identify and support bold scientists and their original ideas.

The Sanford Project is designed for results, and is intended to be a new way of advancing biomedical research by bridging the worlds of research and clinical treatment,” said Alan Lewis, PhD, President and CEO of JDRF. “The Sanford Project – Cure Collaboration enhances JDRF’s bedside-to-bench-to-bedside research platforms in regeneration and autoimmunity by linking them to Sanford Health’s translational research infrastructure.”
