apple has hired a small team of biomedical engineers to work on a super secret initiative to develop sensors that can non-invasively and continuously monitor blood sugar levels, reports cnbc. the team works out of a nondescript office in palo alto, according to three sources.

the project is far along enough that apple has been conducting feasibility trials at clinical sites and hired consultants to help it navigate regulatory pathways. achieving a reliable way to track glucose levels without piercing the skin is viewed as a 'holy grail' for life sciences.

the effort was initially envisioned by steve jobs who wanted smartwatches to monitor important vitals such as oxygen levels, heart rate and blood glucose. one source there were 30 people working in the group a year ago. the glucose team is said to report to johny srouji, apple svp of hardware technologies.
