Why can't one of us invent pre filled cartridges for our pumps?

Hey folks! I'm getting my PhD on astrophysics, so I guess I probably officially qualify for this group.

It's so nice to see how many people are in the group by now and which jobs you have! I'm a physicist working as product specialist/consultant for a software company spezialized on planning and optimizing energy production and trading.
Keep posting!

Hi, I'm a control systems engineer. I work mostly on distributed control systems for refineries, and in the past have worked on programmable logic controllers and in industries like mining, power and chemicals.

Hi guys,graduated from med-school(in internship) in SA,looking to get in interventional radiology.
and i agree with Timothy,pancreatic transplant is already successful but the problem is in the immunity,needs to be rewired,read an abstract about trying marrow transplant(but i think that approach is very VERY risky).
and noticed these part of tudiabetes is dead :/.

I'm new to the forum. I'm a psychiatry resident, medical school at Northwestern, undergrad in biology at MIT. Is that merely Enough for this group?

Graduating with my DVM in less than 6 weeks.. and (hopefully) will be doctoring on horses and small ruminants.

Working in Clinical Chemistry.
Degree in molecular biology.
I worked on inhaled insulin for 2 years. Now in R/D for clinical instrumentation.( not specific to diabetes )
Creating new testing methods etc.
I stumbled on some research for a fingerstick blood meter that required no reagents or strips.
I can't imagine why it was not brought to market. :)
Ok yes I can.

I think the cure for type 1 diabetes is in immune system manipulation.
