About Lane

 

Lane Desborough is Product Strategist for the Diabetes business unit of Medtronic. A proud father of three beautiful kids, Lane spent the first 25 years of his career as a control engineer making oil refineries and chemical plants run more safely and efficiently and helping the world’s energy situation by making the smart grid more reliable.

Then, in 2009, his son Hayden – age 10 at the time – was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Life changed dramatically for the entire family. For Lane, that included a career change. Shortly after Hayden’s diagnosis, Lane attended a diabetes conference, desperate to learn everything he could about the disease. There he met Dr. John Mastrototaro, Vice President of Research and Development for the Diabetes business unit of Medtronic.

As a result of that encounter, Lane is now at Medtronic applying his expertise in closed loop systems, human factors, and systems engineering to the development of an artificial pancreas – a job he takes very seriously (and very personally).
