His father, Ed, coinvented the "bionic pancreas" to keep him safe.
There is an old saw that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity, and Ed Damiano's relationship with Dr. Steven Russell is a perfect example of the saying in action.
In 2006, when Damiano came to the Joslin Diabetes Center to give a talk about the experiments he was doing on pigs, using an early version of the bionic pancreas.

"It's intimidating when you start considering the list of things that influence blood sugar," Ed Damiano, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University, told NPR. Damiano's son, David, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 11-months-old.
"Emotions and physical activity, if you're healthy. You can't possibly take into account and balance all those things," Damiano continued. "And sometimes you get it right. And often you get it wrong."
Thankfully, Damiano is giving new hope to his son, and potentially, all those diagnosed with type 1 diabetes now and in the future. This hope comes in the form of an iPhone-based artificial pancreas or "bionic pancreas. Damiano is racing to get the new device, designed to help people better manage their blood sugar, approved by the Food and Drug Administration before his son heads off to college in three years.
"Most artificial pancreas projects consist of a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and a multi-hormone pump controlled by a software program to mimic the logic/intelligence of a pancreas," noted iMedicalApps. "For this [Damiano's] project, they used a Dexcom G4 CGM and two separate Tandem t:slim pumps for secreting glucagon and insulin-based hormones which respectively raise and lower blood sugar levels.
For now, Damiano has received approval to launch a new round of testing. Beginning this past June, dozens of new adult and adolescent volunteers signed up to use his system for 11 days.
