ADI Celebrates 100 Years of Insulin

Over the coming months the Alberta Diabetes Institute will be hosting a series of seven seminars and, on Wednesday, June 16, a half-day event to celebrate the 100th anniversary since the discovery of insulin in 1921 by Frederick Banting, Charles Best, John Macleod, and James Collip.

The discovery of insulin completely transformed the treatment of diabetes, saving millions of lives worldwide.

The University of Alberta has a long history of diabetes research starting with Dr. James Collip (University of Alberta alumni) and his contribution to the discovery of insulin, the discovery of the Edmonton Protocol, and the establishment of the Alberta Diabetes Institute at the University of Alberta.
