The International Diabetes Federation estimate 629 million people will be encumbered with diabetes that is a 48% increase since 2017. Therefore, current prophylactic medication is not eradicating diabetes.
The following research is proposed:
· To invent new PISA techniques for preparation of sugar-sensing vesicles.
· To establish simultaneous PISA and insulin encapsulation techniques for the preparation of unique insulin-delivery vehicles.
· To evaluate the use of these smart materials as drug delivery systems with applications into the treatment of diabetes without the requirement for regular glucose monitoring.
