Clinical Trials

Help Now and in the Future

The Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute conducts clinical trials on an ongoing basis for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Trials are conducted in La Jolla by a clinical research team of experienced physicians, nurses, and others, many of whom are bilingual in English and Spanish.

You may qualify if you:

  • Have Type 1 diabetes or are a family member of someone with Type 1 diabetes
  • Have Type 2 diabetes and are not taking medication for diabetes
  • Have Type 2 diabetes and are managing your diabetes with diet and exercise, or oral or injectable medication

Qualified participants may receive investigational medication, study-related physical exam and blood tests, and compensation for time and travel.
