The Endocrine Clinical Research Team of the Joslin Diabetes Center is active in numerous clinical research studies related to the prevention and management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and its complications in children and adults.

Through these research studies, the Joslin Diabetes Center and University Endocrinologists are able to offer individuals with diabetes the advantage of the latest investigational and new pharmacologic treatments, state-of-the-art medical procedures and testing, and close, specialized medical attention. In addition, these services are often provided free to study volunteers. The conduct of research trials can also provide you with more information and a better understanding of your medical condition.
