RADIANT aims to discover and define rare and atypical forms of diabetes. These refined diagnoses will be used by diabetes researchers, physicians and patients to accurately explain their disease.
This could also lead to better diagnoses, improved treatments, and potential prevention of these diseases.
RADIANT will conduct research on individuals and families with rare and atypical diabetes.
Through our research, we want to develop “methods” (the most accurate and/or efficient tests) to identify individuals with atypical diabetes.
There is currently little information and resources for atypical diabetes. RADIANT wants to change this.
We will conduct genetic testing and clinical testing with our enrolled participants. We will use what we learn to develop a “platform” - an electronic community resource to advance research in this area.
This platform will allow the broader research community to access data and samples to learn more about atypical diabetes.
