Research of Type 1 Diabetes

Google and Sanofi Join Forces

Sanofi and Google have announced a business partnership to create a device that will gather information to help people with Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes better manage their blood sugar levels. The partnership will combine Paris-based Sanofi’s knowledge in diabetes care and devices with the analytics, compact electronics, and chip design know-how of Google’s evolving life science division.

It is far too early to have any clear idea of what this device will look like. However, according to the press release, it sounds like it might be CGM-like and combine different components of diabetes management, such as A1C levels, medication regimens, patient-provided feedback, and sensor devices.

If this story sounds familiar, it’s likely because there has recently been news of Google’s recent life science division’s partnership with Dexcom to create a compact and disposable CGM. The internet giant also has undertaken a project to create a contact lens that gauges blood glucose readings, The Verge reports. This stacking of partnership announcements makes one wonder who’ll be next to join forces with Google’s life science division. It certainly seems to indicate that the company is serious about making a splash in diabetes management.
