Alberta Diabetes Institute

The University of Alberta has a remarkable legacy of accomplishment in diabetes health research that extends from the first clinical use of insulin nearly 100 years ago to leading the world in islet transplantation today. No other centre has been more influential in advancing treatments for Type 1 diabetes patients, and now there is an equally impressive core of Type 2 expertise on campus. 

In 2007 the Alberta Diabetes Institute was established and is now Canada’s largest free-standing structure devoted to diabetes research. Each year the Institute strives to make a difference by pursuing research that is:

• Strategically Aligned • Highly Multidisciplinary • Collaborative • Translational

ADI is on the forefront of scientific discovery in virtually every field relevant to diabetes, and continually pushes these discoveries towards new therapies and health policies. Explore our website and related links to learn more about this extraordinary institute.
