Ellis Garai

Medtronic Inc.
Principal Biomedical Engineer

Ellis Garai is an engineer and entrepreneur. He currently works in the Sensor R&D group at Medtronic Diabetes division in California. While there he has supported the launch of the Guardian Sensor (3) continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor which is used in conjunction with the 670G system, the first hybrid closed-loop insulin delivery system. He also works to help coordinate the effort to understand and prototype new technologies that may be used in future continuous glucose sensor platforms.

Prior to Medtronic Ellis worked for Advanced Bionics (acquired by Boston Scientific) as part of the R&D and Emerging Indications Team and has also worked in product development at IDEO as well as Vibrynt, an early stage medical device company that was spun out of a Silicon Valley medical device incubator, ExploraMed. Ellis was also an Innovation Fellow in the Stanford Biodesign Innovation Fellowship out of which he co-founded BioTrace Medical.

Ellis holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in design and manufacturing from UCLA, a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University with a focus in mechatronics and medical device design, and completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford with a thesis on opto-electromechanical medical devices.
