Artificial Pancreas Center
The Department of Pediatric Endocrinology at Stanford is committed to the development of an artificial pancreas. We are currently receiving grant support from the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation to pursue this goal. We are working with engineers at Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, and the Rensselaer Institute to develop algorithms for the artificial pancreas. We are also conducting clinical trials with Dr. Peter Chase at the Barbara Davis Center in Colorado to prevent nocturnal hypoglycemia using an "artificial pancreas". If you are interested in participating in these clinical studies, please click here for our clinical trial's site for information on current studies.
