7:00 – 8:15 pm Seminar on the Artificial Pancreas Project with Professor Steve Patek
Darden Classroom 280

Stephen D. Patek, Associate Professor of Systems and Information Engineering, earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee and his M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He joined the University of Virginia faculty in 1998 and has over nineteen years of experience in the theory and practice of stochastic optimization and control in diverse application domains. In this seminar, Professor Patek will discuss UVa’s “artificial pancreas” project, which uses a reconfigured smart phone running advanced algorithms to monitor and regulate blood sugar in patients with Type-1 diabetes. The system developed by UVa Professors Boris Kovatchev, Steve Patek, and other researchers on a multi-institution interdisciplinary team is in the final stage of testing. Subjects are participating in two new clinical trials at nine sites in the U.S. and Europe. The clinical trials are supported by a $12.6 million grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases of the National Institutes of Health. “Favorable results from these long-term clinical trials examining how the artificial pancreas works in real-life settings could lead the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other international regulatory groups to approve the device for use by people with type 1 diabetes…” You can read more about the artificial pancreas project in this UVA Today article from last year.
