About Us

DiaUnion is a center of excellence in research into type 1 diabetes and related autoimmune diseases

In Medicon Valley, the Danish/Swedish life-science cluster in the Øresund region, there are strong and internationally recognized competencies within screening, genetics and immunology in type 1 diabetes as well as related autoimmune diseases.

DiaUnion was created in 2020 to bring these competencies together in a center of excellence with the aim of researching the development of therapies for the prevention and intervention of type 1 diabetes and related autoimmune diseases. This will reduce the burden on patients and at the same time the cost to society.
