FSU Idea Grant fosters new research

Florida State University Junior John Wilcox is able to continue studying Type 1 Diabetes in different capacities at FSU thanks to the Center for Undergraduate Research and Engagement’s IDEA Grant. John will be investigating how insulin pumps used by Type 1 diabetics, like himself, can alert users if there is a leakage. Insulin leakages can lead to hyperglycemia, a rise in blood glucose, which left untreated could lead to ketoacidosis (a diabetic coma).
