Caption: Artificial pancreas. Researcher in her lab, holding the artificial pancreas that she is developing. This implant is made of a metal casing containing a supply of insulin which is kept in place by a gel barrier. When glucose levels in the body rise, the gel barrier starts to liquefy and lets insulin out. The insulin then feeds into the veins around the gut and into the vein to the liver, mimicking the normal process for a person with a health pancreas. Photographed at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
