Implantable Glucose Sensor for Diabetes Management
An implantable glucose biosensor to continuously monitor blood sugar levels, which is being developed at Texas A&M University, will revolutionize diabetes management. Dr. Melissa Grunlan, associate professor of biomedical engineering, and her research team are developing a "??self-cleaning"?%9D membrane that envelops an implanted glucose sensor, shielding it from the body"s immune response that would otherwise render it nonfunctional.
