Study Participation Opportunities

Research helps us understand how to live well with diabetes and will eventually lead us to the cure.

Because of research, we have experienced monumental advancements in understanding what causes diabetes, how it affects the body, how to manage diabetes both physically and emotionally, and what contributes to the development of diabetes complications.

We encourage you to consider participation in one or more of the clinical research studies now available at UCSF and outlined below.


Type 1 diabetes opportunities:


Type 2 diabetes opportunities:

  • Study to Understand Gaining Access to blood glucose Records (SUGAR): In this randomized controlled trial, adults with type 2 diabetes who are 18 years of age and older will be given new blood glucose monitoring technologies to manage their diabetes. 

  • Sensors On Youth with Type 2 Diabetes (SOY-T2): This is a pilot study of young adults with type 2 diabetes looking at how they feel about using technology to manage blood sugar levels. This study will help learn if a sensor (or continuous glucose monitoring “CGM” system) and a smartphone app are useful tools. It is open to adolescents and young adults ages 13 to 21 years old who have had type 2 diabetes for at least 6 months. If you are interested in learning more and want to be contacted, please send us a note at: [email protected] or call (415) 514-8549.
