degree at Trinity College Dublin. This

included a medical access exam and

focused on molecular regulation and

muscle health. Minnock admits that

after achieving his Masters he was

a bit unsure what to do next in his

career. By sheer chance, he saw and

advert that Hughes and the team had

put out for a Masters project to prove

the health benefits of the InsulCheck

CLASSIC. His role has in part

been funded by the Irish Research

Council (IRC).

Says Minnock, "I was toying

with doing a PhD or joining one

of the bigger companies in the

medical sector but having seen the

advert for the project and, once I

understood the scope of the device, I

immediately understood the value of

the technology. I couldn't understand

why everyone wasn't getting the

device for free as a matter of course.

I thought, 'let's do the PhD and do the

research as part of that degree'."

Hughes says, "Dean is like a dog

with a bone, he is persistent. While

we had brought the InsulCheck

CLASSIC to market, Dean as

helped push forward the newer

solutions InsulCheck CONNECT and

InsulCheck DOSE."

Minnock started at the company

in January 2016. He says, "Once I

gained a bit of experience, I saw

that the range of pens available was

directly related to the insulin they

delivered and the manufacture of that

insulin. However, the medication is

decided on by the doctor more than

the patient. Ultimately, the pen is just

a means of insulin delivery. From this,

ideas for other new products evolved.

We could see how sensors were

being used as well as apps like bolus

calculators that take out some of the

decision-making for users. It also

became clear that any technology had

to be really simple to use as well as

have evidence for its usefulness."

NEXT ISSUE: In Something New

(part 2) we'll look in greater detail

at Innovation Zed's range of insulin

delivery add-on technologies

and their plans for the company

going forward.
