Let’s Make Your Research Study a Success

Study Recruitment

T1D Exchange accelerates research through our successful study recruitment efforts. With more than 60,000 people directly impacted by T1D in the T1D Exchange Registry and Online Community, we are connected to a community that has a passion for participating in research.

Over the past few years, we have helped to quickly fill dozens of T1D research studies, sometimes within just a matter of minutes.

T1D Exchange has been successful in recruiting for a variety of research, including:

  • Online surveys
  • Interviews and focus groups
  • Virtual/at-home studies
  • In-person clinical trials

Our extensive study recruitment efforts made possible:

  • Patient experiences of severe hypoglycemia
  • Safety, tolerance, and potential efficacy of cell-based therapy
  • Patient experiences with closed-loop insulin pump apps
  • Patient evaluation of adhesives for an investigation CGM sensor
  • Safety, tolerability, and efficacy of islet cell infusion therapy
  • Financial stress related to diabetes for T1D caregivers
  • Effects of exercise on blood glucose levels
  • Quality of clinicians’ diabetes technology training
  • Overcoming barriers to trying diabetes technology

Custom Research Projects

T1D Exchange works with diabetes researchers to design, deploy, analyze, and report on custom research projects to help them meet their goals.

With our research partners, we carry out a wide variety of T1D research studies, including:

  • Interviews and focus groups
  • Online surveys
  • Virtual studies
  • Quantitative Analysis
  • Qualitative Studies and Analysis
  • Performance Improvement Analysis
  • Implementation Project Analysis

Recent Custom Research Successes:

  • By combining surveys with associated CGM data for over 1,000 individuals, including time in range (TIR) analysis, we have assessed perceptions of severe hypoglycemia and the realities of its frequency, severity, and impact.
  • We recently examined unmet needs and barriers to CGM usage in both T1D and T2D to help guide a company looking to bring a new CGM device to market.
  • We have begun exciting work on the topic of screening people at risk for developing T1D, incorporating patient and provider market research to help inform how we might track real-world efforts in screening across the U.S.
  • With some of our T1DX-QI centers, we examined operational barriers and drivers to smart pen use to help inform the manufacturer of opportunities to reduce system friction and improve uptake.
