Artificial Pancreas

Artificial Pancreas

A series of studies evaluating automated insulin delivery systems in people with type 1 diabetes.

Although there are many great technologies available for people with diabetes, evidence shows that it remains a difficult challenge to achieve personal goals, especially avoiding low glucose levels.

The Sansum Diabetes Research Institute, in partnership with many institutions around the world, has been at the forefront of the development of artificial pancreas technology. Under the leadership of Dr. Jordan Pinsker, we are currently running a series of studies evaluating fully automated insulin delivery systems in people with type 1 diabetes. These studies involve a computer platform coordinating information from a continuous glucose sensor and an insulin pump. Areas of focus for our current artificial pancreas trials include exercise, meal planning and announcement, and comparison of different controller algorithms. In addition, we are currently performing home trials of artificial pancreas technology.
