I posted about Dr. Elliot Botvinick from the University of Calfornia Irvine who is developing a multianalyte sensor called iGlobe. It is unique and exciting and funded, for development by the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
Dr. Elliot Botvinick, PhD is Professor, Samueli School of Engineering, BioEngineering, Surgery, Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic and The Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology. iGlobe: He was awarded a 3-year, $3.5 million grant, along with Dr. Gregory Weiss, Professor of Chemistry, from the Helmsley Charitable Trust for the development of the iGlobe, first of its kind device to simultaneously measure insulin, glucose, oxygen and ketones with a single probe inserted just beneath the skin.
Named the UCI Samueli School of Engineering “Innovator of the Year” and “Entrepreneurial Leader of the Year for several years running, Dr. Botvinick holds more than 20 invention reports and lots more than 10 patents. Dr. Botvinick earned his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. in bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego. He’s a dynamic and very enthusiastic scientist … and he is an amazing friend to the entire T1D community.
Just this week, Dr. Botvinick did a wonderful presentation to the DIY looping community as well as those in the T1D communities. Hope you enjoy this!
How exciting to have a new sensor participant. I suggest this will be a wonderful addition.
