The University of Cambridge Metabolic Research Laboratories has offered a series of new findings developed around using synthetic pancreases in outpatients suffering with diabetes. The idea is that the artificial organ doesn't replace the living one, but rather ensures that insulin is properly delivered by creating a specialized system that monitors glucose levels via a smartphone.

The synthetic pancreas is a constructed organ designed to do everything the living version does -- but better. The device is tech-connected and able to collect data and information on insulin levels, as well as administer more if the body is lacking. This happens automatically as a way to save lives and increase functionality in the overall body by detecting deficiencies.
