Apple hires secret employees to treat diabetes

Apple Inc has already hired a team of professional biomedical engineers as part of its secret initiative, originally envisioned by late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs to design sensors to effectively treat diabetes. That’s what CNBC reported citing three folks already familiar with the matter.

However, an Apple representative refused to comment.

The newly hired engineers are supposed to work at a nondescript office, Palo Alto, California, which is close to the corporate headquarters, as CNBC informed.

The news arose at the time when the line between pharmaceuticals as well as technology is blurring because companies are struggling to cope with chronic diseases by means of high-tech devices, combining software, biology, hardware, thus jump-starting a novel field of medicine dubbed bioelectronics.

The previous year, GlaxoSmithKline Plc as well as Google parent Alphabet disclosed a joint company, specializing in marketing bioelectronic devices to withstand diseases by simply attaching to individual nerves.
