NIH extends funding for Helsinki diabetes research

Helsinki University announced on 28 March that the US National Institutes of Health has granted the university's diabetes research programme a three-year extension grant worth $1.85 million (€1.4m).

The funding is given to the Trial to Reduce Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus in the Genetically at Risk (TRIGR) project that conducts research on the causes and development of children’s type 1 diabetes.
