Sensor at Center of BioCHIP Featured in Hartford Courant

The Hartford Courant recently featured Biorasis, a UConn biomedical start-up company, and its product, “Glucowizzard,” a fully implantable sensor smaller than a grain of rice, which continuously monitors glucose levels and relays real-time data to wristwatch-like receivers and smartphones. InCHIP PI and Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences Diane Burgess and her collaborators, Chemistry Professor Fotios Papadimitrakopoulos and InCHIP Affiliate and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Faquir Jain together developed Glucowizzard. It is one of the first two biosensor-based e-health technologies BioCHIP will pair with behavioral health interventions to prevent and address obesity and related conditions.
