The focus of all diabetes research should be the person who lives with the disease. One aspect of the DIAMAP project is to look at the obstacles that scientists and clinicians find when they try to bring their work closer to the people who have to live with the condition. To 'translate' the research into therapy, whether that is a change to lifestyle, a new device to measure blood glucose or deliver insulin or a new treatment to address one of the many complications of the disease.

DIAMAP also looks at the research that is being done around Europe by different research groups, it will help to ascertain if there are overlaps where some of the work could possibly be done in a more effective way, or, for example if a particular research goal needs a specific amount of targeted funding to be completed. This information may be of use to the European Commission and to other funding agencies. These organisations along with the people who plan research and the people it is intended to help, those living with diabetes, will be able to use the final results - the Road Map for Diabetes Research in Europe.

This website is created with material from the European Union FP7-funded DIAMAP project (concluded 2010). The content is continually being reviewed and updated as we are undertaking on-going consultation with the diabetes research community. Progress will be indicated on the road maps. You can send comments on the scientific content through the tab on the right 'make a feedback!'.
