Episode 48 of The Sugar Mama's Podcast features Dr. Matthew Webber, an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He is currently in charge of a team that is studying, among other things, stimuli responsive glucagon.
This emergency glucagon or "smart glucagon" as I like to call it is a gel based technology that is injected into the body. It is able to sense when blood sugar levels are dropping to a dangerously low range and release glucagon in response to that. In other words, it has the ability to raise blood sugar levels automatically to treat lows in insulin dependent patients such as those living with type 1 diabetes.
Research like this is amazing to me and I can't wait for you to hear all about. When your done, if you want to know more about what Dr. Webber and his team are doing in their research lab, you can check them out on the Webber Lab website.

Bob Saget's Here For You
BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
