The Canadian Diabetes Association is proud to be a leading supporter of diabetes research in Canada. Since 1975 and the establishment of the Charles H. Best Research Fund, the CDA has funded thousands of Canada’s most renowned scientists, scholars, and clinicians in their quest for new and innovative developments in the prevention, treatment, and management of diabetes.

Each year, the National Research Council (NRC) of the CDA—based on the recommendations of our five peer review committees—makes final funding decisions for both Operating Grant and Personnel Award applications.
