Our ambition

At EDENT1FI, we are working to revolutionize how we tackle Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in European children. By using specific markers, our goals include finding T1D early, managing it before symptoms appear, developing new treatments, refining how we detect it, and raising awareness. Our overarching mission is to make a meaningful impact on understanding, caring for, and preventing T1D through widespread screening and collaboration.

Our objectives

1

Identify T1D before hyperglycemia onset through population screening.

2

Develop strategies for preventive and disease-modifying therapies.

3

Enhance validated biomarkers for early T1D progression and refine their use.

4

Inform the public, healthcare professionals, and authorities about new T1D paradigms.

5

Manage presymptomatic T1D to lessen disease impact at clinical diagnosis.

In essence, EDENT1FI aims to revolutionize T1D diagnosis, care, and prevention through comprehensive screening and collaborative efforts.
