Historica Canada has released its newest Heritage Minute on the discovery of insulin. I was honoured to serve as one of the historical consultants on this segment, along with Chris Rutty and Grant Maltman. I appreciated the great effort made to accurately portray this complex story and to convey its essence in just 60 seconds of screen time. Congratulations to the whole team who brought this to life.
I was pleased to speak with Madeleine Cummings at CBC about J. B. Collip’s key role in the discovery of insulin.

I’ll be participating in a symposium to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin in 1921-22. The event, originally scheduled for November 2021, has been postponed until May 2022.
