Students Explain the Connection Between Insulin and Glucose

November 16, 2017


Biomedical science students investigated how insulin and glucose are involved in cell communication. They were told to imagine that you are a healthcare professional who has the task of explaining the connection between insulin and glucose to a group of adults who are either at risk for diabetes or have just been diagnosed. Students used a design process to create a 3-D working model demonstrating how insulin works to move glucose into cells, and to explain this process to their target audience.
