Description
Associate Professor Edward Damiano and his family talking about living with type 1 diabetes and his effort to build a bionic pancreas. The goal of the Bionic Pancreas Project is to reduce the impact of diabetes on those who have to live with it until a cure is found. To accomplish this, our team of engineers at Boston University are developing a Bionic Pancreas to automatically make decisions about insulin and glucagon dosing every five minutes.
