We're featured in the NY Times!

Our project is
featured in the NY Times as one of several grassroots groups pushing diabetes care into the future. We are so honored to be recognized alongside other amazing community efforts. If you're new to the project, check out our fundraising page on experiment.com for more info on the work we're doing and watch this blog for updates.

Now you may ask…

This is cool, how do I get involved?

Donate money. Our project is entirely volunteer-run and crowdfunded. All donations go straight to our lab budget, and doing science isn't cheap!



Donate time. We are a group of volunteer citizen scientists who spend nights and weekends tinkering away at Counter Culture Labs in Oakland. We'd love for you to join our cause, especially if you have wetlab experience and are willing to mentor eager biohackers.
