Implantable Glucose Sensor for Diabetes Management
Added Oct 12, 2015 | Rate View top rated
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” membrane that envelops an implanted glucose sensor, shielding it from the body’s immune response that would otherwise render it nonfunctional.
