We aim to discover and define rare and atypical forms of diabetes that will be used by diabetes researchers, physicians and patients.
Most patients with rare forms of diabetes remain undiagnosed and do not receive proper treatment.
Through our research, we want to develop “methods” (the most accurate and efficient tests) to identify individuals with atypical diabetes.
Precise genetic diagnosis of diabetes enables targeted therapy, leads to improved quality of life, and aids in diagnosis of diabetes in other family members.
RADIANT is supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
RADIANT is a network of universities, hospitals and clinics across the United States dedicated to better understanding atypical diabetes. Our team of academic institutions and scientists collaborate with physicians and healthcare groups to identify people with atypical diabetes and learn more about their health.
