Further funding for Diabetes Research Unit Cymru

To coincide with World Diabetes Day today, the Diabetes Research Unit Cymru based at Swansea University Medical School is pleased to announce funding for a further two years to continue their important research.

Swansea University reports that the award of £999,426 has been awarded by Health and Care Research Wales on behalf of the Welsh Government.

In Wales 7.3% of the population aged over the age of seventeen live with diabetes, the highest prevalence in the UK. Diabetes affects all sections of society and accounts for 10% of NHS spending. Around 20% of hospital in patients in Wales have diabetes. Research into ways of both preventing and coping with the diabetes epidemic is a priority.

The Diabetes Research Unit Cymru was established in April 2015 to address these important healthcare needs by undertaking and supporting a comprehensive, integrated translational research programme, designed to advance development and implementation of therapeutic strategies for prevention treatment and self-management of diabetes.
