George Shaker, Richard Hughson, and Safieddin (Ali) Safavi-Naeni; AI and radar technologies could help diabetics manage their disease

People with diabetes could be able to monitor their blood sugar without drawing blood using a system now being developed at the University of Waterloo.

In a recent study, researchers combined radar and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to detect changes in glucose levels without the need for painful finger pricks several times a day.

Sanjeev Kohli, Mentored by CBB Member Brain Dixon, takes cancer treatment tech to BioGENEius Challenge in Boston

Jackie Sharkey · CBC News · Posted: May 30, 2018

Sajeev Kohli doesn't like to boast that he's found a cure for cancer. The sixteen-year-old thinks too many people make that claim. 

But over the past year he's been working long days and nights out of a lab at the University of Waterloo to find a better and cheaper way of treating cancer and other diseases. 

"Basically my project focuses on developing a new method to build these nanoparticle-based drug carriers that can be used for the treatment of a wide range of diseases," Kohli said.
