Our all-volunteer team has received much positive support from the global population of scientists studying type 1 diabetes, as well as from Beyond Type 1, JDRF, and IPITA. We provide curated conversations, events and technology to our scientific T1D focused audience. We are committed to celebrating the work of young scientists and connecting them with opportunity as well as the best new ideas in the field.
