We Have the Power to Impact The Future of Diabetes, and We’re Doing Something About It
SDRI is dedicated to improving the lives of people impacted by diabetes through research, education, and care.
Sansum Diabetes Research Institute (SDRI) was founded in 1944 by Dr. William Sansum, the first person in the U.S. to produce and administer insulin to people with diabetes. The Institute has made seminal contributions to improving the health and medical management of people with diabetes ever since. Dr. Lois Jovanovic, the former director of SDRI, pioneered research and treatment guidelines that completely changed how we treat diabetes in pregnancy worldwide.
SDRI has developed a vision for future research centered around conducting multi-organ system research in people and taking advantage of recent advances in research technology. This type of research is complex and laborious but essential for making advances relevant to people with metabolic diseases.
An important component of SDRI’s future research direction is focused on determining the specific dietary components that each person needs to prevent, treat, and even reverse cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, coronary heart disease, heart failure, dyslipidemia, high blood pressure, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic kidney disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. The food we eat has profound effects on health because it directly affects body composition, multi-organ function, cellular metabolism, and the gut microbiome. Precision Metabolism/Nutrition research will optimize the management of people with cardiometabolic dysfunction and diseases.
We are committed to pursuing an integrated and sophisticated research program that will integrate the elements of Precision Metabolism/Nutrition into all types of diabetes and diabetes-related diseases.
TYPE 1 DIABETES
SDRI is on the cutting edge of research for those living with type 1 diabetes.
TYPE 2 DIABETES
SDRI has been a leading center for developing novel therapeutics for type 2 diabetes.
DIABETES IN PREGNANCY
SDRI developed the protocols now considered standard care for pregnant women with diabetes.
PRECISION METABOLISM & Nutrition
SDRI’s new research initiative will optimize the management of people with cardiometabolic dysfunction and diseases.
