A Wearable Sensor for Continuous Glucose Monitoring for Diabetics

Team: Michael Strano with Jin-Ho Ahn, Paul Barone, Maria Carcole, and Kyungsuk

Diabetes patients require frequent monitoring of blood glucose so they can take action to avoid complications due to frequent hyper- and hypoglycemia (blood sugar levels). This project will develop a carbon nanotube based, minimally invasive, tissue implantable, “wearable' sensor that can measure and report a patient's glucose levels on a continuous basis, allowing much better glucose control and resulting in better patient health.
