Modular Medical Announces Steve Gemmell as New Vice President of Engineering | BioSpace

SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 26, 2024 / Modular Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ:MODD) (“Modular Medical” or the “Company”), a development-stage, insulin delivery technology company seeking to launch the next generation of user-friendly and affordable insulin pump technology, today announced the addition of Steve Gemmell as Vice President of Engineering.

Gemmell has over 20 years of experience in medical device product development and operations and previously held R&D leadership positions with Cytrellis Biosystems, Inc., Onduo, a joint venture between Sanofi SA and Verily Life Sciences, and Insulet Corporation. He has significant expertise in automated insulin delivery, and, in his past positions, led collaboration projects with many other companies in the diabetes space, including Dexcom, Abbott, Therasense, Lifescan and Eli Lilly.

“Steve is an important addition to our team, as we continue to focus on optimizing the MODD1 system to be simple, cost effective and accessible to what we call the almost pumpers,” commented Paul DiPerna, Chairman and President of Modular Medical. “He brings significant experience in engineering, manufacturing and operations with multiple FDA-cleared medical devices.

“Steve will also lead the development of the next product in our roadmap, the MODD1+. We intend to use our low-cost, communications-enabled and differentiated patch pump form factor as a platform to make our pump offering integrate easily with the many other diabetes-related tools, which range from continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) to mobile applications, for patients to better manage their blood sugar. With the upcoming MODD1+ product, we intend to add capabilities to provide future users of our MODD1 pump an upgrade path, as they become more capable and comfortable using an insulin pump. We look forward to Steve’s future contributions.”
