Which one of the following innovations do you think is most likely in 2015?

Poll dates: December 31, 2014 - January 7, 2015

Doctors, scientists, and engineers in academia, government, and industry are working hard to develop a cure for type 1 diabetes, to find ways to prevent it, and to develop better tools to improve treatment. Throughout the year, we report on the progress of this work through our weekly What's New email newsletter. To close out 2014, we thought we'd ask our readers what they thought 2015 would bring.

Continuous glucose sensors became commercially available in 2006. Even with insurance coverage pretty widespread, just 12% of our readers believe that very accurate sensors will be in general use in 2015.

With many studies showing that closed loop systems work in all age groups, slightly more readers -- 17% -- think we'll see a closed loop system available.

On the biological side, 22% think that 2015 will lead to some advancement, either in islet cell transplantation, halting autoimmunity, or in finding the cause for type 1 diabetes.

Finally, 40% think that nothing much will change in 2015, about the same as last year.

We've run similar polls in December 2006, December 2007, December 2008, December 2009, December 2010, December 2011, December 2012, and December 2013.
