CELLIST SHEKU BECOMES JDRF AMBASSADOR

DEXCOM AQUIRES TYPEZERO

JDRF, the leading global organisation

funding type 1 diabetes research, has

appointed internationally renowned

cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason as a global

ambassador. The 19 year-old British cellist

captured the world's attention during

his performance at the Royal Wedding

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Kanneh-Mason was diagnosed with Type

1 diabetes at the age of 12, five years

before he won BBC Young Musician 2016

and made his mark as one of the brightest

young stars in classical music, all the while

balancing his blood glucose levels before

he performs.

"Managing my diabetes does provide

an extra challenge before I perform. Most

musicians don't have to think about

avoiding hypos," he explains. "But playing

at the Royal Wedding was awesome and

I'm glad I can help raise awareness of

the condition and of the Type 1 diabetes

charity, JDRF."

As JDRF Global Ambassador,

Kanneh-Mason will help to highlight

JDRF's international research programme

and lend his voice to enhance fundraising,

advocacy and education efforts in the fight

against Type 1 diabetes. He is currently

studying at the Royal Academy of Music

and is passionate about making classical

music accessible to all.

As reported by Business Insider in late

August, Dexcom announced that it

had acquired TypeZero Technologies,

Inc. TypeZero's offering includes the

inControl diabetes management system,

designed to provide personalized

diabetes management solutions including

technology to automatically adjust and

regulate insulin delivery.

Dexcom, TypeZero and the University

of Virginia have had a longstanding

relationship working towards developing

important technologies for diabetes

management, including inControl for

integration with both automated insulin

delivery (AID, in other words insulin

pumps) and smart insulin pens.

Steve Pacelli, Dexcom's Executive

Vice President of Strategy & Corporate

Development, commented, "TypeZero

is a great fit for Dexcom as we look to

deliver a growing set of tools to both

our insulin delivery partners and our

customers. Combined with best-inclass CGM technology,

we believe

TypeZero's technology and strong team

will accelerate our efforts to further

differentiate Dexcom's portfolio."

Chad Rogers, TypeZero's CEO,

added, "For the last several years, our

company has been committed to creating

diabetes management products that

simplify the life of a person with diabetes.

As part of Dexcom, we will continue to

embrace the mission to empower people

with diabetes through innovation."

Dexcom expects to support the first

commercial launch of an AID system

using the inControl algorithm in 2019.
