Dr. Gu’s work to transform the way that diabetics manage their blood glucose levels has once again won well-deserved recognition. The American Diabetes Association has granted Dr. Gu a prestigious Junior Faculty Award to fund his research in creating a next-generation glucose-responsive insulin delivery system to manage glucose levels. By creating a smart insulin delivery device that is pain-free, inherently safe and cost-effective, Dr. Gu’s work has the potential to completely change the way that the over 371 million people with diabetes manage their disease. The ADA Junior Faculty Awards are given to faculty within their first ten years of research and provide research funding for a three-year period. BME congratulates Dr. Gu on his continued success in transforming the treatment of diabetes!
