The Bionic Pancreas
The Bionic Pancreas Team is a collaborative group from Boston University and Massachusetts General Hospital working together to make automated blood glucose control a reality.
Until a cure is found, the goal of the Bionic Pancreas Project is to reduce the impact of diabetes for people who have to live with it. To accomplish this, our team of engineers at Boston University is developing a Bionic Pancreas to automatically make decisions about insulin and glucagon dosing every five minutes.
That’s 288 decisions per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

Few diabetes books focus specifically on the day-to-day issues facing people who use insulin. In this fully updated and revised edition, diabetes educator Gary Scheiner provides the tools to think like a pancreas.

ViaCyte, Inc., a leader in the emerging field of regenerative medicine, is headquartered in San Diego, California. ViaCyte’s innovative product is based on the differentiation of stem cells into pancreatic beta cell precursors (PEC-01™), with subcutaneous implantation in a retrievable and immune-protective encapsulation medical device (Encaptra® drug delivery system). Once implanted, the precursor cells mature into endocrine cells that secrete insulin and other hormones in a regulated manner to control blood glucose levels. ViaCyte’s goal is a product that can free patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes from long-term insulin dependence. ViaCyte has received substantial financial support from both the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) and JDRF.
