Today SDRI has an international reputation for research and innovation in the creation, development and application of smart technologies. With an established world class reputation for innovation in the field of artificial pancreas and diabetes in pregnancy, SDRI has ambitious plans to broaden its area of technological expertise and influence to impact positively on a range of areas within type 1 and type 2 diabetes at a practical level.
