Clinical Research Opportunities

Studies currently being conducted by University of Washington Researchers


The Restoring Insulin Secretion Study

The goal of the Restoring Insulin Secretion (RISE) Study is to find new approaches to prevent or treat types 2 diabetes. We're looking for adults who were recently diagnosed with diabetes or who are at risk for diabetes.

The Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes:
A Comparative Effectiveness Study (GRADE) is a long-term study of different treatments for type 2 diabetes.

GRADE will determine which combination of two medications is best for glycemic control, has the fewest side effects, and is the most beneficial for overall health.

Effect of Dietary Glycemic Index on Diabetes Risk in Impaired Glucose Tolerance

The Effect of Dietary Glycemic Index on Beta-cell Function (GI Diet) study explores how diets containing carbohydrates with low, moderate or high glycemic index affect blood sugar levels and insulin output in individuals with impaired glucose tolerance. Impaired glucose tolerance is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. Currently recruiting.

Antioxidants in Type 2 Diabetes

The Effect of Antioxidants on Beta-cell Function in Humans Study is testing the ability of the anti-oxidant supplement N acetyl-cysteine (NAC) to improve insulin output in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Currently recruiting.
