The Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation’s Johnny Ludvigsson-prize for excellent research in childhood and adolescent diabetes, has this year been given its Young Researcher prize to: Associate Professor Joey Lau Börjesson at the Department of Medical Cell Biology, Uppsala University.
Motivation for the award “Joey Lau Börjesson is awarded the prize for her work with advanced experimental
studies to provide enhanced understanding of how transplanted insulin-producing cells
are transformed by their new environment in the transplants, and how the
survival and function rate of the transplanted cells can be improved, including stem cell modification.
The findings can lead to improved results in clinical island transplantations and provide a basis for how stem cell-derived insulin-producing cells can be developed as
Stardots has jointly with Joey developed software that can increase correctness and rapidity in Joey’s diabetes research.

Stardots is thrilled to announce another MedTech project and this time we are teaming up with two of the best scientists in their respective fields to deliver the next generation Deep-Brain Stimulation (DBS) techniques, useful in the treatment of e.g., Parkinson’s disease.
Together with research groups of neurologist PhD Dag Nyholm from Uppsala university hospital and professor of control engineering and director of automatic control Alexander Medvedev from Uppsala university, we are building a cloud-based, AI-driven, platform for improving the DBS treatment.
DBS is considered one of the best and reliable techniques for e.g., Parkinson treatment. Combining Stardots cloud, application and computation technology, with Uppsala university newly developed AI algorithms, and the experience and knowledge in neuro-science and neuro-surgery, the project will develop a system that will aid doctors in their optimization of DBS for patients. The system will further enhance the effects of the DBS-treatment using smart and self-learning algorithms, adjusting the DBS-parameters using various inputs and models in one easy and intuitive interface.
We just released Evolved Horizon v. 1.20 for PC, and it is packed with new features and hardware support. Evolved Horizon now features support for the excellent Sparkfun HX711 Loadcell amplifier, updated the launcher GUI, database performance, analytical plot upgrades support for zoom, pan and data cursor, as well as a better utilization of the screen size. See the release notes for a complete list.
Stardots was recently invited to MathWorks HQ in Natick. MathWorks is a frontline company in technical computing, full of brilliant, open and hardworking people – dedicated to accelerating the pace of science and engineering. We are looking forward to working closely with MathWorks, to be able to deliver the best possible products for our customers and partners.
Stardots is glad to announce yet another project within health-care: sPark. sPark features an AI- and cloud-powered application designed to quantify the degree of Parkinson using various techniques. The end goal is to provide better treatments to patients. The research groups of Professor Alexander Medvedev and neurologist Dag Nyholm at Uppsala university and Stardots is co-developing the application; testing is scheduled at Uppsala University Hospital.
sPark is currently in beta-phase and we will keep you updated of the progress of the Project!
We are honored to be invited to give a talk at the MathWorks EXPO, explaining our approach to develop, sell and distribute data-analysis applications for the R&D. CEO finished by demonstrating Evolved Horizon on the Windows platform. Check out some photos below and download the presentation here.
MATLAB EXPO is coming up (23/5). Please register and join us as our CEO is presenting Stardots, our application- and distribution-model, as well as giving examples of Stardots products that is used by researchers in various scientific fields.
Stardots are honored to be nominated for NyTekniks and Affärsvärldens 33-list – a list of the hottest Tech startups in Sweden! Previous companies on this list includes very successful ones, like Spotify.
Honored to be invited to the MATLAB EXPO 2018 and give a presentation about Stardots, our applications and how we collaborate with researchers and engineers. Free registration at http://www.matlabexpo.com/se/
