Beta Bionics, a startup created by Boston University biomedical engineer Ed Damiano, hit the benchmark after 775 members of the public put up an average of $1,300 each to back its idea for a new kind of pacemaker for diabetics.

"This is not a cure," said study coauthor Edward Damiano, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University who holds a patent on the software that makes the automatic dosing decisions.

Whilst many parents have to do their best to help their children manage their insulin doses, Ed Damiano is Associate Professor, in Biomedical Engineering at Boston University and used his engineering expertise together with his keen knowledge of his son's type 1 diabetes to develop a novel 'bionic pancreas'.
Damiano and his accompanying research team have completed initial tests of the bionic pancreas. However, Ed Damiano is committed to carrying out further research to get the bionic pancreas ready before his son, who is now 15 years old, goes off to college.


Bionic Pancreas Controls Blood Sugar Levels in Adolescent and Adults with Type 1 Diabetes

Commentary by: Edward Damiano, PhD
"In both of these studies, this device far exceeded our expectations in terms of its ability to regulate glucose, prevent hypoglycemia and automatically adapt to the very different needs of adults-some of whom were very insulin-sensitive-and adolescents, who typically need higher insulin doses," said codeveloper of the system Edward Damiano, PhD, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. "There's no current standard-of-care therapy that could match the results we saw," he said. Dr. Damiano, whose son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 11 months, explained what having a device like this could mean to people with this disease. "The most practical difference would be not having to think about diabetes 24/7, not having to constantly make decisions about things that those of us without type 1 never have to think about," Dr. Damiano said. "Another real problem that would be relieved is the fear-fear of going to bed at night and not knowing if your blood sugar level will drop dangerously low while you sleep. Even our study participants, who controlled their blood sugars significantly better than national averages on their usual care, ran high levels overnight but still had significant episodes of hypoglycemia," Dr. Damiano said. "And another extremely frustrating aspect of diabetes that would be completely eliminated by this device is the enormous sense of failure when you stare at that glucose meter and, despite everything you do to control it; your blood sugar is not in or near the normal range," Dr. Damiano said. "But of course you didn't fail; the tools that are available to you failed. The bionic pancreas we are working toward would relieve that sense of failure and provide a bridge to the often-promised but still elusive cure for type 1 diabetes," he noted.

Edward Damiano, PhD, is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University.
His educational training is in the areas of biomedical and mechanical engineering and applied mathematics. Over the years, his lab has been engaged in basic scientific research that combine aspects of fluid dynamics, solid mechanics, and intravital microscopy to study the biomechanics of the inner ear and blood flow in the microcirculation. In addition to his basic science research, he has also committed himself to building a bionic pancreas for type 1 diabetes.
