The IDF BRIDGES programme, which funds translational research projects in primary and secondary prevention of diabetes, has announced the projects selected from its 3rd round of funding. 3 new short term and 4 new long term projects will be supported, increasing the total number of supported projects to 29 in 24 countries.
