2021 marks the centennial of the discovery of insulin at the University of Toronto. Drs. William Rostène and Pierre De Meyts just published an article that explores the history of insulin, and they are both available to discuss the importance of this landmark discovery and how it's changed the lives of people with diabetes.

This review paper also illustrates various aspects of life in a laboratory, the difficult relationship between the discoverers, and the controversies of this emotional, successful story.
