Open Insulin Project

About

A kit to produce medical-grade insulin at home

The Open Insulin Project is a production system and online service that allows users to produce medical-grade insulin at home for a fraction of the market cost. Using a starter kit and supporting digital platform, Open Insulin translates the process of biopharmaceutical manufacturing into an informative, easy-to-use package. The aim of the project is to decentralise the production of insulin – redressing the balance between the scientific community, private enterprise and the general public.

    In one life prior, Jing was a cancer research scientist developing pharmaceutical drugs for real people. Pre-CIID she worked in both academia and industry experimenting/playing with biotechnologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 and neural implants for BCI. You can read more on her work in page-turners such as: “IDBR: A modular system for high-density, multi-scale electrophysiology” and “Bim is required for T-cell allogeneic responses and graft-versus-host disease in vivo.” As a reformed scientist, she believes there is great potential buried at the intersection of science/design and practices design at that intersection in Oakland, CA. These days, she spends a lot of her time thinking about emerging technology, DIY and using biology as a material for designers. Jing is very enthusiastic about making beautiful, useful artifacts out of messiness.more
