Our institute moved into a new building in Science Park II in Ulm in 2018. We celebrated the groundbreaking for our new building together with about 70 guests on the premises. The "B4B Schwaben" reports about our celebration.
The Institute was founded in September 1986 by Professor Dr. med. Dres. h.c. Ernst Friedrich Pfeiffer. His goal was to develop a portable artificial pancreas so that the therapy of diabetes could be regulated automatically and serious consequential damage to the patient could be prevented. On the way to his vision, he developed the famous "Ulm Sugar Watch". Professor Dr. med. Dres. h.c. Ernst Friedrich Pfeiffer died in 1997 and was therefore no longer able to realize his dream himself. Nevertheless, he laid a foundation stone for diabetes technology research by founding the institute. The University of Ulm reports on developments at the institute in recent years.
At the Institute, we test safety, convenience, performance and accuracy of medical devices in clinical studies. The studies are conducted in a familiar atmosphere, where our study participants come first. The portal Diabetes-Online reports about our work.
Our testing of a blood glucose meter from a discounter and the ensuing legal dispute caused quite a stir in the press. Ultimately, there was a recall action by the manufacturer.
