Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet

TrialNet is a network of 18 Clinical Centers working in cooperation with screening sites throughout the United States, Canada, Finland, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand. This network is dedicated to the study, prevention, and early treatment of type 1 diabetes

Diabetes Trials Unit

The Diabetes Trials Unit (DTU), founded in 1985 by Professor Rury Holman, specialises in performing diabetes-related national and multinational mega trials in partnership with the NHS, NIH, MRC, BHF, DUK, academic institutions and industry. The DTU also undertakes major modelling and statistical programmes to utilise fully the data available from its many studies, with a particular emphasis on modelling diabetes and cardiovascular disease processes.


ResearchMatch has a simple goal — to bring together two groups of people who are looking for one another: (1) people who are trying to find research studies, and (2) researchers who are looking for people to participate in their studies. It is a free and secure registry that has been developed by major academic institutions across the country who want to involve you in the mission of helping today’s studies make a real difference for everyone’s health in the future.

All of Us Research Program

The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine.


We provide information services used by patients, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies, CROs and research centers involved in clinical research around the world.


Welcome to Clinical Connection, the leading source for clinical trials information and notifications. is a Web-based resource that provides patients, their family members, health care professionals, researchers, and the public with easy access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions. The Web site is maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).


D2d is a large-scale clinical trial to investigate if vitamin D supplementation helps prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in adults who are at high risk for diabetes (pre-diabetes).

EU Clinical Trials Register

The Register also provides information about older paediatric trials covered by an EU marketing authorisation. The Register enables you to search for information in the EudraCT database External link. This is the database used by national medicines regulators for data related to clinical trial protocols. The data on the results of these trials are entered into the database by the sponsors themselves and are published in this Register once the sponsors have validated the data.


The Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes: A Comparative Effectiveness Study (GRADE) is a long-term study of different treatments for type 2 diabetes.
