FOR A WORLD WITHOUT TYPE 1 DIABETES.
The Global Platform for the Prevention of Autoimmune Diabetes (GPPAD) was launched in 2015 and brings together several academic research institutions and hospitals in Europe. GPPAD aims to establish an international infrastructure for studies dedicated to preventing the development of type 1 diabetes.
GPPAD locations in five countries are making every effort to achieve a world without type 1 diabetes
We conduct studies in Belgium, Germany, the UK, Poland, and Sweden for the early detection of an increased genetic risk of type 1 diabetes and prevention of disease development.
Participation in our studies is free and voluntary!
