Every day we are working to extend and improve the quality of life for people living with Type 1 Diabetes. Ultimately we hope to be part of the cure. The only way we can get there is by innovation. The pathway to developing new treatments is through clinical trials. TRI clinicians and researchers are working on more than 50 T1D clinical trials. Below are a few we are enrolling participates in now.

PHROG: If you’ve been living with Type 1 diabetes for over 5 years, consider

participating in a study investigating a new medication that may decrease the risk of low blood sugars. Volunteers must be between 20-60 years old and may earn up to $950 in compensation.

Study Procedures:

  • Medical history and medication review
  • Vital signs
  • Finger sticks and blood draws
  • Taking study medication for 4 weeks
  • Two overnight stays in the research unit
  • Wear a blinded continuous glucose monitor

AIDE: If you have Type 1 diabetes, you may qualify for a study to see if automated insulin delivery improves the quality of life in older adults. This study is examining if an insulin pump with different treatment modules can

reduce the incidence of low blood sugar and increase the quality of life in people ages65 and older who have had Type 1 diabetes for at least one year. Volunteers must be 65+ and may earn up to $450 in compensation.

Study Procedures:

  • Vital signs
  • Physical examination
  • Finger sticks or blood draws
  • Review of medical history and medications
  • Cognitive assessment questionnaires
  • Upon confirmation of eligibility, study participants will receive an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor to wear for the duration of study participation.
