The Alberta doc who played a vital role in the discovery of insulin
While Frederick Banting and Charles Best are credited with discovering insulin at the University of Toronto, it was an Alberta-based doctor who helped them purify it, making it available to successfully treat diabetes. Banting and Best, working under the directorship of John Macleod, were making great strides in their research in 1921. Near the end of that year, they invited Dr. James Bertram Collip to help with the purification of their extract. He succeeded in doing so.  At the time, Collip was on a fellowship at the University of Toronto (his alma mater) and on a sabbatical from the University of Alberta. As the Alberta Medical Association notes, Collip was a pioneer in insulin research. He’d arrived at the U of A with his PhD at the age of 23 in 1915 — younger than many of his students — eventually earning a DSc and MD. While at the institution, he published 77 papers. Read More
