Research with the Nightscout/CGM in the Cloud Community


We are working with patients and caregivers from the CGM in the Cloud Community and the Nightscout Foundation to create opportunities for participatory design, citizen science, and open science diabetes research. Sign up for our mailing list if you are interested in participating as a patient or caregiver with type 1 diabetes, and/or if you want to hear more about research! 

If you are attending the Children with Diabetes Meeting in Orlando in July 2017, please join us for a participatory design workshop focused on T1D research. This interactive session is for adults with type 1 diabetes and/or adult caregivers interested in research. Workshop participants will:

  • Learn about the Nightscout Data Commons and how you can donate your diabetes data for research
  • Explore topics and outcomes of interest to be studied using Nightscout data

Attendees will receive a $25 gift card for their participation. Space is limited; please register online at by June 23!
