Huge donation to Danish diabetes research
28 June 2012
Danish diabetes researchers have received DKK 100 million from Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, reports ingeniøren.dk
A group of researchers from the small town Hørsholm, north of Copenhagen, is currently working on developing a new censor for measuring blood sugar. The initiative is proving so promising that the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation has decided to support the project with DKK 100 million.
The objective is to develop a technology that will increase the precision when measuring patients’ blood sugar levels, and as a result, ensure diabetics can avoid dangerous fluctuations in blood sugar levels.
The small research group is a part of the global company Medtronic.
