The Chief Scientist Office (CSO) within the Scottish Government has responsibility for encouraging and supporting research into health and healthcare needs in Scotland. CSO responds primarily to requests for funding research proposals initiated by the research community in Scotland.

CSO expenditure on diabetes research in 2009-10 was £827,129 of which £44,000 was spent on type 1 diabetes. CSO is currently funding 6 research projects on diabetes at a total cost of £1.1 million. CSO would be pleased to consider further proposals for research into type 1 diabetes which would be subject to the usual peer and committee review.
