On the heels of winning $12 million in supplemental funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct a major, multicenter, national clinical trial of his iLet™ bionic pancreas ...


Beta Bionics shared exclusive breaking news with diaTribe today that it has received an impressive $5 million investment from insulin maker Novo Nordisk in its newest strategic partnership. 

​That passionate investor base was evident in another of Wefunder’s $1 million campaigns: an experimental medical device for Type 1 diabetes produced by Beta Bionics, a startup headed by Boston University professor Ed Damiano.

Hope for the Battle against Type 1 Diabetes

Ed Damiano, a Boston University professor of biomedical engineering and the father of a 16-year-old boy with type 1 diabetes, has been racing for nearly 13 years to develop an artificial, or bionic, pancreas that could transform the lives of millions of people who have the same disease as his son, freeing them from the round-the-clock burden of managing a potentially life-threatening disorder themselves.
