Institution: University of Cambridge
Project duration: 01/09/2011 – 31/08/2016

Objective: This study is part of our research to develop an artificial pancreas – a device that combines an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor to automatically deliver insulin as and when it is needed.

It is investigating whether children and adolescents with type 1 can achieve better overnight glucose management using an artificial pancreas system than they can using a conventional insulin pump.
