Trial Net Research Opportunities in Jacksonville
Trial Net is a global network of researchers in 150 locations within 18 countries dedicated to the study, prevention, early detection and early treatment of type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that a simple blood test could detect an increased risk for T1D months to years before symptoms appear? If you have a relative with T1D, you are at a higher risk of being diagnosed yourself compared to a person with no family history of the disease.
While funding is essential for research, participation in research is also vital in finding, "The Cure." T1D has been cured over 200 times in mice, but researchers can only learn so much from non-human subjects. Please consider participating in research opportunities.
