Storyboard Text

  • October 31 1920
  • Frederick Banting got the idea of Insulin while preparing for a lecture by Moses Barron on the Pancreas.
  • Later in 1920 he approached a professor at the University of Toronto with his idea. The prof. was intrigued by Banting's idea and arranged for a laboratory space, an assistant and dogs to conduct the experiment. In May of 1921 Banting returned to Toronto after going back to London to think over his options for a 2 month research period at the university. 
  • July 30th was a great day for Banting and his assistant Best when in dog 410 the pancreatic extract that was injected finally worked by reducing the amount of sugar in the dogs blood. Best and Banting then spent all of August working on dog 92.

  • The prof supervised the insulin research and in November suggested Banting and Best present preliminary findings to the Physiological Journal Club of the University of Toronto. 
  • Soon after the meeting, Banting and Best began a longevity experiment using Dog 33. The experiment required a continuous supply of insulin, so the two men set about producing a purified extract.
