Industry Research Partnerships

The Industry Discovery and Development Program (IDDP) aims to promote for-profit interest in JDRF’s mission to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications. JDRF IDDP funding is available to support research programs in companies or for-profit entities worldwide, either publicly or privately held, focused on a priority area within JDRF’s mission (see JDRF’s most recent Research Priority Areas). IDDP provides a mechanism and opportunity for JDRF to foster long-term collaborative relationships with industry, taking promising T1D research through discovery and development and toward commercialization.

For more information about applying for an IDDP grant, please contact Olivia Lou, Ph.D., director of external scientific partnerships, at or 212-479-7606.

If you would also like to inquire with the JDRF T1D Fund, an independently managed venture philanthropy fund that makes early-stage commercial investments, please contact Amy Montalto, national director, at or 617-910-7542.
