Studies Currently Recruiting


This is a Phase 1 study to assess  safety and tolerability of a DNA plasmid. The plasmid is designed to halt the immune attack on the insulin producing beta cells. The study involves 12 subcutaneous weekly injections with follow up for a year after the initial dose.


Insulet- Omnipod

Closed Loop Therapy with Verapamil (CLVer) for Beta Cell Preservation

In this pediactric study, we want to find out if keeping the blood sugar very close to normal will help pancreas cells that make insulin stay alive longer. The study also is testing whether a drug called verapamil can keep these cells healthy.

A diet study for people with T1D

Our team is conducting an exciting new research study to learn how to help young people with Type 1 diabetes achieve blood glucose goals and a healthy weight at the same time.

TrialNet Pathway to Prevention T1D Risk Assessment Study

Families like yours can help us learn more about type 1 diabetes (T1D) and how to prevent it. Stanford TrialNet offers no cost risk screening for relatives of people withT1D, and innovative clinical studies to preserve insulin production and slow down the progression of the disease.  Early detection is critical, and testing is easy and convenient.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to innovate basic, translational, and clincial research in endocrinology and diabetes grounded in the principles of excellence and equity to advance scientific knowledge and improve the lives of all. 

Stanford Diabetes Research Center

The SDRC promotes the teaching and training goals of Stanford University by training the next generation of investigators and leaders of diabetes research and care.

Basic Research

The aim of our basic science program is to elucidate the role of the endocrine system in both health and the development of diseases.  Through this work, we hope to increase our understanding of the important physiological processes that are controlled by hormones and how alterations in hormone levels perturb the body’s homeostasis and cause disease in people.  Our goal is to apply discoveries we make in the laboratory toward the development of novel therapeutics for a variety of illnesses that affect children.
