Insulin implant for Type 1 diabetes

Bioengineers are creating an insulin-producing implant for people with Type 1 diabetes using 3D printing and smart biomaterials.

Supported by a grant from JDRF, Omid Veiseh and Jordan Miller from Rice University in Houston, Texas, will use insulin-producing beta cells made from human stem cells to create an implant that senses and regulates blood glucose levels by responding with the correct amount of insulin at a given time.
