Danny Chou, Ph.D

Danny Chou is an assistant professor of biochemistry at the University of Utah and is developing a type of smart insulin for diabetes called Ins-PBA-F. The goal of this smart insulin is to actively regulate blood sugar throughout the day by monitoring levels and releasing a drug when blood sugar levels are high. This would enable diabetes patients to inject insulin only once per day. Chou is also developing components that could be used in an artificial pancreas, which would sit outside the body with a pump for insulin and a pump for glucagon with computer algorithms controlling secretion of each hormone.
