Endocrinologist Steven Russell, MD, PhD, of the Mass General Diabetes Center, and Edward Damiano, PhD, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University, spent part of their summer at Camp Joslin, a summer camp for children with diabetes in western Massachusetts.

Dr. Russell and Dr. Damiano are co-principal investigators of the Bionic Pancreas Project, which is developing a portable, wearable device which automatically regulates blood sugar for people with diabetes. As CBS News found out, the bionic pancreas was a hit with campers and parents alike.
