No More Needles? Georgetown University Teams with Gentag and SAIC to Develop New Glucose Sensor Technology with Wireless Connection to Cell Phones
Date:6/18/2008

a professor of Physics and director of Georgetown Advanced Electronics Laboratory (GAEL), Mak Paranjape, an associate professor of Physics and researcher at GAEL Health Microsystems at Georgetown, and SAIC researchers Thomas Schneider and Robert White, who worked in the area of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), initially developed the skin patch technology to monitor the status of soldiers in a battlefield.

The SAIC and Georgetown glucose sensor technology has been developed for DARPA and can be combined with Gentag's cell phone RFID-sensor reader platform technology.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gentag, Georgetown and SAIC have agreed to pool their IP and to sell or license the combined technology to a company developing glucose monitors or insulin-delivery systems under a competitive bidding process.

The technology is protected by twenty-one issued and pending U.S. and international patents. Diabetes is a growing international health problem. In the United States, medical expenditures totaled $116 billion in 2007 and were comprised of $27 billion for diabetes care, $58 billion for chronic diabetes-related complications, and $31 billion for excess general medical costs according to the American Diabetes Association.

For more information about acquisition or licensing terms, please contact Claudia Stewart, Vice President, Office of Technology Commercialization, Georgetown University at (202)-687-7424 or at cs477@georgetown.edu.
