Meet Dr. John Mastrototaro
We’re very pleased to introduce you to another one of our executives with a long history of working hard to improve the lives of people with diabetes. Dr. John Mastrototaro, Vice President of Research and Development for the Diabetes business unit of Medtronic, has been with us for more than 17 years.
Among many other accomplishments, he led the team of people who created the world’s first continuous glucose monitoring technology, brought to market back in 1999 as the MiniMed CGMS system. So you might call him the “Father of CGM.”
Today he shares with The LOOP some memories from the early years of CGM development and describes the basics of how the technology works. Stay tuned for more from Dr. Mastrototaro in the weeks to come.
