Quin, a pioneering, female-founded, med-tech start-up, announces the

Quin is a mobile medical app that gives individualised insulin-dosing guidance and creates novel insights to enable personalised medicine for type 1 diabetes.

The company is preparing to launch its app for trial in June, limited to people who use Dexcom CGMs, before fully releasing the app to individuals using any type of CGM in the UK and Ireland in September.

Quin CEO and Co-Founder, Cyndi Williams said: John has a wealth of experience in the diabetes technology industry, and we are excited to add his expertise to the board. His knowledge and insight will play a major role in our ambition to help people better understand, and ultimately improve their diabetes management.” 

John Lister added: I am excited to be joining the board and to become part of Quin’s admirable mission to help people living with type 1 diabetes achieve better health outcomes and a higher quality of life. Through my previous experience, I understand the challenges faced by individuals on a daily basis and am proud to be part of the movement to make type 1 diabetes more manageable.” 

Also joining Quin, as part of the Clinical Advisory Board, are Dr Sankalpa Neupane and Dr Nicola Neary. Both are highly respected diabetologists from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals and St George’s University Hospitals respectively.
