The Finnish Diabetic Nephropathy Study (FinnDiane) - Presentation

FinnDiane Group

The Finnish Diabetic Nephropathy Study (FinnDiane) was founded to uncover the risk factors and mechanisms of the diabetic complications. We specialize in type 1 diabetes, where the body depletes its own capacity to use glucose via a deranged immune reaction, typically at a young age. We wish to improve the care for these patients by increasing the knowledge of the genes and environmental factors involved, and thus reduce the human and societal cost until a cure for diabetes itself – if ever found – is available.

The FinnDiane Study Group has built up an extensive national and internal network of collaborators that enables maximization of the resources for the genetic studies, but also for sharing of data and collaboration.

Additional information on the Finnish Diabetic Nephropathy Study is available from the FinnDiane website.
