Diabeloop, wins Big Booster

event_big-booster_455238Launched in Lyon in April 2015, Big Booster is the first international strat-up acceleration program  organized between Lyon and Boston. After various stages, 10 candidates including 4 Lyonbiopole member companies were selected for the final.



Thursday, April 14 2016, during  BIOVISION 2016, these 10 candidates defended their project before a final jury.



Diabeloop, Lyonbiopole's member won the first place of Big Booster. This start-up offers the first French artificial pancreas, developed in Grenoble. This allows insulin therapy "closed mouth" with a consequent reduction of nocturnal hypoglycaemia and improved glycemic average.


The 2nd place was also won by Lyonbiopole's member Neolys Diagnostics, which develops tests allowing to measure, within the framework of a radiotherapy, the intensity of the side effects.


Diabeloop, Neolily Diagnostics and Echy, the 3rd prize-winner, will be divided a 100 000-euro check, intended for their development.
