Programming cellular behavior using trigger-inducible gene switches is a central goal in synthetic biology-inspired approaches to deliver controlled dosages of therapeutic agents on demand, as well as to program the behavior of engineered cells in future cell-based therapies
We show that Apple-Watch-programmed percutaneous remote control of implanted Glow-controlled engineered human cells can effectively treat experimental type-2 diabetes by producing and releasing human glucagon-like peptide-1 on demand. Directly interfacing wearable smart electronic devices with therapeutic gene expression will advance next-generation personalized therapies by linking biopharmaceutical interventions to the internet of things.
