T1D Exchange was founded on the belief that people affected by type 1 diabetes need better solutions faster – better treatments and better care.

This nonprofit organization takes an innovative approach that puts the community of people touched by type 1 diabetes at the center of research that will meaningfully impact their lives.

Their integrated research model offers researchers access to aggregated clinical, biological, patient-reported outcomes and electronic health record data, all while fostering collaboration among patients, physicians, researchers and industry. 

The goal of the Diabetes Innovation Challenge is to:

  1. Identify the most promising innovations in diabetes with a special interest in insulin-dependent diabetes
  2. Present these ideas to a robust network of funders, investors, and partners from academia, industry, and government and nonprofit organizations
  3. Award the top innovations from the competition with cash and in-kind support

  • Automated Insulin Devices (Artificial Pancreas) and related components
