The Scottish Diabetes Research Network (SDRN) is a clinical research network commissioned in 2006 by the Chief Scientist Office of the Scottish Government to coordinate and facilitate diabetes research across Scotland. 

The SDRN is managed by an Executive Group consisting of diabetic clinicians, GPs, STET researchers specialising in diabetes.  Main aims of SDRM are to:

  • support clinical studies for patient benefit in all Health Board areas in Scotland .
  • work with people with diabetes to enhance their participation in clinical studies that are aimed at improving future treatment, wellbeing and prognosis.   SDRN has developed a National Research Register for patients wishing to take part in diabetes research.
  • ​provide the results of epidemiological research based on collaborative analysis of fully anonymised linked datasets. ​ This may help with planning diabetes services and resources in the future.
