This diabetic biohacker is making insulin in a lab to prove it can be cheaper

The price of insulin is leading some diabetics to take risks by rationing their doses, buying it from other countries and even trying to make their own. A team of biohackers in Oakland, California are working to make small batch insulin possible. The founder of the Open Insulin Project is a Type 1 diabetic and wants to prove there are easier, cheaper ways to make insulin rather than rely on the big manufacturers like Eli Lilly, Novo Nordisk and Sanofi.
