GluBill and GluAnna talk with Dr. Ed Damiano, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, about his involvement in the Beacon Hill Study of the Bionic Pancreas. Dr. Damiano reflects on his personal connection to type 1 diabetes and how this link fueled his desire to produce a closed loop system.

 

 

Also in this video, Anna Floreen, Glu’s Community Outreach Manager, describes how she felt when she allowed the automated diabetes device make her diabetes management decisions.

Lastly, Dr. Damiano discusses what’s happening with the current outpatient investigator trial and reviews some early blood glucose results from this study. When does Dr. Damiano think the Bionic Pancreas can come to market? Watch the video to find out!

Follow along as Anna writes in more detail about her experience in Anna’s Bionic Pancreas Journey.
