Funders and Donors

The goal of JDRF CCTN is to implement studies and clinical trials to evaluate promising new therapies that will intervene in disease progression and/or improve the management of T1D and its complications. To this end, JDRF CCTN is partnering with leading investigators and institutions, with all partners working collaboratively toward this shared goal.

Some of JDRF CCTN's key partners are listed below:

Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario)

In response to Ontario's economic challenges, Budget 2009 provided more than $1 billion over five years for a new southern Ontario development agency. The agency's programs will support economic and community development, innovation, and economic diversification, with contributions to communities, businesses and non-profit organizations. It will help workers, communities and businesses in southern Ontario position themselves to take advantage of opportunities, as economic growth recovers in Canada and around the world.
