Using Physarum polycephalum to solve the insulin crisis

Hi guys!

I'm very happy to finally join this community. I've read posts, watched videos, and had many questions answered here for years. I've worked with slime mould, specifically Physarum polycephalum, for over eight years now. I am continually astonished by the amazing abilities and beauty of these creatures.

Recently, I completed and patented a method of producing insulin rapidly and efficiently with Physarum in answer to the insulin crisis. Now we're raising money to develop the project and make it accessible to those who need it. Eventually, it could lead to diabetic patients being able to produce insulin in their own homes and insulin being produced in third world countries for diabetic patients who would die otherwise. This project could also open the door to producing many other drugs and supplements in Physarum

Please read about it if you're interested and share if you like it. Here's the link:

I'd also love to talk about the science of it with you guys who understand and have worked with slime mould, so comment or message me. I will post details and pictures of projects I have done with Physarum that led up to this if you guys are interested.

Thank you!

Did you have the slime mold process it or? How did slime mold help develop that? I was thinking it might work for it so I was surprised to see this
