We have made PAD materials that release insulin in response to pulses of light from an LED light source. We have made a compact light source that uses an LED to illuminate the material.  These results were published in the top ranked weekly chemistry journal in the world (Angewandte Chemie) in 2013, where a reviewer called the work “Truly Innovative” and “A Paradigm Shift”


Subsequently, in 2016 we demonstrated that the insulin PAD approach works in diabetic animals, with light stimulating insulin release and blood glucose reduction. This was published in ACS Molecular Pharmaceutics, where it was named an ACS Editors’ Choice, an honor given to 1% of ACS publications.
