Making ultra-concentrated insulin to enable smaller insulin pumps – COMPLETED

Scientific title: Stable Ultra-Concentrated Insulin Compositions
Principal Investigator: Dr Sarah Howell
Institution: Arecor Ltd, Cambridge
Project duration: 07/03/2016 – 06/03/2017

Objective: JDRF has partnered with Arecor Ltd, a UK-based technology company, to create an insulin that works as fast as current rapid acting insulins, but which is more compact. This ultra-concentrated insulin will enable the creation of smaller pumps, and could allow for more insulin to be carried around at any one time in pens. This could be of particular use to those with increased insulin resistance, who need regular access to greater amounts of insulin.
