The Happy Moments Podcast
We welcomed a very special guest for this episode: Professor Radhakant Padhi, a well-known scientist with the Indian Institute of Science, joined us to talk about his research in the field of artificial pancreas and affordable insulin pumps for type 1 diabetics in India. With over 70 million people affected by diabetes in India this demands immediate action to provide better treatment options for diabetic patients.
Professor Radhakant Padhi is a well-known scientist in the field of aerospace engineering and control systems. He has made significant contributions in the development of advanced control systems for aerospace applications, including the design of autopilot systems for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and reusable launch vehicles.
In this episode we talked about his research with the Indian Institue of Science: Professor Padhi is working on creating a customizable and intelligent artificial pancreas. Combined with a cost-effective insulin pump, his work has the potential to revolutionize diabetes management in India. Today, more than 70 million people are affected by diabetes in India. This demands immediate action to provide better treatment options for diabetic patients. The research led by Prof. Padhi is expected to help bridge this gap, especially for Type-1 diabetics, who are completely insulin-dependent.
