Clinical trials for diabetes
Children’s Wisconsin is committed to research that could improve the lives of families living with diabetes. We work closely with the Max McGee Diabetes Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The center conducts cutting-edge research that includes a particular focus on using genetics and genomics tools to study the development and progression of diabetes. Patients and their families play a critical role in this important work.
The Max McGee Diabetes Research Center has collected blood samples, genetic material, and clinical histories on more than 500 families with diabetes, following many people for years. Other past studies have focused on intervention groups for adolescents with type 1 diabetes and the impact of coping skills training for children with chronic health conditions, including diabetes.
