Diabetes Clinical Studies Groups - recruiting members now

As part of their 2015–19 Research Strategy, Diabetes UK will establish the UK’s first Clinical Studies Groups for diabetes. These groups aim to have a significant long-term impact on the quality of clinical diabetes research applications in the UK, as they have had for research into other health conditions.

Each Clinical Studies Group (CSG) will unite leading thinkers in key research areas with people living with diabetes and healthcare professionals. Groups will come together to create a roadmap for new research by identifying priority areas and the key clinical studies needed to move care forward.
