Welcome!
My name is Diva De León-Crutchlow and I am a Pediatric Endocrinologist with clinical and research expertise in monogenic disorders of insulin regulation.
For the next 10 days we will be discussing “The Prospects for a Bionic Pancreas”. This is a fascinating and timely topic and I look forward to a lively discussion. We have an outstanding panel of international experts that will be sharing their experiences and insights.
I would like to start with the biggest question and the one my patients ask all the time: “Are we there yet?”
Are all the key components necessary to make a completely automated bionic pancreas possible and successful available or soon to be available?
What are these key components?
