Welcome to the Alberta Diabetes Institute

The Alberta Diabetes Institute (ADI) is a research facility dedicated to translating discovery science into health solutions for the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes.  The ADI uses a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together leading researchers from diverse fields of expertise in a state-of-the-art facility on the University of Alberta Campus.

The ADI and the University of Alberta have an impressive lineage of achievement in diabetes research and treatment, from Dr. James Collip's first clinical application of purified insulin in 1921 to the internationally acclaimed Edmonton Protocol for pancreatic islet transplantation.  With its focus on translating research into clinical applications, the ADI promises to lead the world in developing improved treatments for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
