Advancing Science through Collaborations

In addition to private investment, GlySens’s substantial record of support through peer-reviewed targeted research awards demonstrates a solid foundation of program validation.  Funding agencies, programs, and collaborative partners that have participated in our research and development program include:

National Institutes for Health (NIH), National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)

The National Institutes of Health is the United States’ medical research agency–supporting scientific studies that turn discovery into health.  NIH is the largest source of funding for medical research in the world, investing more than $31 billion annually in medical research for the American people.  The mission of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is to conduct and support medical research and research training and to disseminate science-based information on diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases, nutritional disorders, and obesity; and kidney, urologic, and hematologic diseases, to improve people’s health and quality of life.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.

JDRF has research projects in 17 countries totaling $530 million currently taking place. In 2012 alone, JDRF funded more than $110 million in T1D research. And since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.7 billion to diabetes research. JDRF’s efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D.

U.S. Army’s Technologies for Metabolic Monitoring (TMM) Program /
Department of Defense

The Technologies for Metabolic Monitoring (TMM) and Julia Weaver Fund (JWF) Research Program is a collaborative initiative between the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH, NIDDK). The overall program goal of the TMM and JWF Research Program is to fund scientifically meritorious research in accordance with directives received from Congress.

National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Advanced Technology Program (NIST-ATP)

NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories and was established by Congress to remove impediments to U.S. industrial competitiveness.   NIST’s Advanced Technology Program (ATP) was created to spur the development of path-breaking new technologies by providing cost-shared funding for selected valuable R&D projects.  Today, NIST’s mission continues to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve quality of life.

State of California’s Technology Investment Partnership (CalTIP) program


The California Technology Investment Partnership (CalTIP), was created to accelerate the commercialization of new technologies with the potential for strong positive economic outcomes; as a competitive grant program, it was designed to assist California companies competing nationally for federal awards.  The objective of the program is to make California proposals more competitive in national federal solicitations by supporting projects which leverage a broad spectrum of private sector, federal and state resources in pursuit of creating new, globally competitive, commercial products and services that will lead to sustained economic growth and job creation in California.

University of California at San Diego (UCSD)

The University of California San Diego is an academic powerhouse and economic engine, recognized as one of the top 10 public universities by U.S. News and World Report. UCSD recently ranked 5th in the nation for annual federal research and development support. The University excels in both traditional scholarly disciplines and fields that cross these disciplines, such as neuroscience, nanoscience, and climate science.  UCSD researchers consistently earn international acclaim. They include Nobel and Pulitzer prize winners, members of the National Academies, and recipients of MacArthur Foundation “genius grants.”
