At Medtronic, innovation is vital so that we can continue to improve the lives of people living with diabetes. Our Research & Development (R&D) team is at the center of that innovation. However, we realize that it’s important for the team to stay centered on patients’ needs. That’s why we focus on having the right people in the right seats. We’ve recently made some exciting additions to our R&D teams to help make sure we maintain a clear focus on what matters to people with diabetes.
In December, we acquired a talented group of engineers and scientists from Nutrino Health, a company with expertise in nutrition-related data service and data science. Given the impact that food and nutrition have on managing diabetes, we are excited to integrate their extensive food analysis database and nutrition science expertise into future solutions. The whole Nutrino team is now part of Medtronic, and they’re igniting a new passion for us around how the body responds to food.
We also recently hired Jesus Berian in January. Some may be familiar with Jesus from his contributions to diabetes innovation projects through Nightscout. At Medtronic, he’ll be helping us transform our insulin pump connected systems. With his insights, talent and focus on people with diabetes, Jesus will help us continue to focus on designing systems that make a big impact on patients’ lives.
We’re excited to welcome the Nutrino team and Jesus to the Medtronic family to help us transform diabetes care. By focusing on what matters most to people with diabetes, we believe our innovative technologies will continue to create greater freedom and better health for those living with diabetes.
