£50m donation to cure T1D

There has been an historic £50m investment

from the Steve Morgan Foundation into Type 1

diabetes research.

Steve Morgan, wife Sally and son.

The donation - the largest

ever single gift in the UK

for diabetes research -

will pave the way for the

development of new treatments

for Type 1 diabetes, bringing a cure

closer. Diabetes UK has joined

forces with the Juvenile Diabetes

Research Foundation (JDRF) to

make sure this donation funds the

best scientists and most promising

research projects as part of the Steve

Morgan Foundation Type 1 Diabetes

Grand Challenge.

The Steve Morgan Foundation

(SMF) founder Steve Morgan and his

wife and SMF trustee Sally, are driven

by their personal connection with

the condition as their son Hugo was

diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the

age of seven.

Through the extraordinary and

unparalleled £50m investment from

the Steve Morgan Foundation, the

partnership will fund game-changing

Type 1 diabetes research that will

drive forward the development of

new treatments and cures.

SMF's donation is the largest ever

single gift in the UK for diabetes

research, and this is the first time

that JDRF UK and Diabetes UK have

partnered with a foundation to

deliver research at this scale. SMF

has donated a total of £7m to JDRF

over the last three years, becoming

the biggest single donor in the

charity's history.

Grand challenge

The SMF Type 1 Diabetes Grand

Challenge will focus on three areas

of research, which were decided on

after consultation with world-class

scientists and people with type 1

diabetes. These areas were identified

as carrying the most potential to

improve the lives of people with type

1 and propel us towards a cure:

Treatments to replace or rescue

insulin-making beta cells in the

pancreas

Treatments to stop the immune

system's attack that destroys

insulin-making beta cells

Next generation insulins, such as

those that respond to changing

blood sugar levels

Commenting, JDRF's chief executive

Karen Addington said, "JDRF was

founded on the values and practice

of collaboration, both in the UK and

internationally, and together with

the Steve Morgan Foundation and

Diabetes UK, we will drive research

This unparalleled

investment will

change the course

of Type 1 diabetes

research forever
