JDRF Artificial Pancreas Project Update

Over the past few weeks, there's been a lot of great discussion within the Juvenation community about JDRF's Artificial Pancreas Project, as well as requests for additional information.  JDRF is pleased to offer this update for those who want to learn more. 

Just a week after the announcement of our first industry partnership in this project (the groundbreaking announcement to develop a first-generation artificial pancreas with Animas) JDRF announced a second partnership, this time with BD to develop microneedles and other insulin pump components to increase the effectiveness of pumps and further advance the development of artificial pancreas systems.  You can read about that second partnership here.

You can also read a comprehensive article on the Animas and BD announcements in diaTribe, an online journal of research and product news for people with diabetes.  The article, based on an interview with JDRF's Dr. Aaron Kowalski, is here.

Lastly, you can read about how diabetes blogger Joshua Levy views the JDRF-Animas partnership.  An article from his "Current Research into a Cure for Type-1 Diabetes" blog appears here.

Please come back to JDRF's Artificial Pancreas Project site often for updates.  There you can sign up to receive notes like this to let you know of new partnerships, progress and developments in this project, and in JDRF's pursuit of a cure.

Thank you for continuing the discussion and for your support!
