Caption: Sir Frederick Banting (1891-1941), Canadian physiologist and Nobel laureate. Banting is best known as being a co-discoverer of the hormone insulin. While working with Professor John McLeod and his assistant Charles Best at the University of Toronto in 1922, he helped to isolate insulin from the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas and prove its connection with diabetes. Banting and McLeod won the 1923 Nobel prize, but Banting chose to share his half with Best as he felt that he should have been credited for his contribution.
