Using Math to Cure Diabetes

Over 28 Million Americans live with Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes occurs when someone’s pancreatic cells don’t create insulin, and cause dangerously high blood sugar. It may seem like a problem solvable only by health professionals, but as is typical of Mathematicians, Professor Richard Bertram from Florida State University and his colleagues are solving the problem from a new perspective—with math.
