The ADF is a not for profit, charitable organization committed the search for a cure for diabetes. ADF has been in operation since 1988 and was founded by a group of volunteers whose lives were affected by diabetes. Our donation dollars fund the Alberta Diabetes Institute (ADI) which is a world-class diabetes research facility, unique within Canada. The ADI provides desperately needed research space-all of which is aimed at finding a cure. As a world-class collaborative facility, the ADI attracts and retains the very best research scientists and clinicians, while providing a training centre for medical and graduate students who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
