October 25, 1923: Banting and Best Win the Nobel Prize For the Discovery of Insulin

The Nobel prize actually went to Banting and McLeod (Banting’s supervisor) even though Banting and Best were the co-discoverers.

  1. Write about any times you felt cheated, or misunderstood.
  2.  Me and medicine – shots, pills, the flu, and other stories about you and encounters with doctors.
  3. The dog was part of the discovery. They induced the dog to have diabetes, and then treated it with insulin and it recovered. Write any stories about your pet, or the pet of a friend, but especially if the pet became ill and recovered.
