Congress and the president agreed on a budget for next year that includes big increases to diabetes funding.  The main NIH institution for diabetes research will get over $1.8 billion in funding—an increase of over $68 million compared to FY2015. This will allow the institute to expand promising research that moves us closer toward a cure for diabetes.  The CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) will receive over $170 million—an increase of $30 million.  And the National Diabetes Prevention Program’s budget has been doubled from last year to $20 million.
