Summary "J. B. Collip and the Development of Medical Research in Canada tells the intriguing story of J.B. Collip, whose restless drive fuelled his pioneering studies in endocrinology and sustained a successful research enterprise through the first half of the twentieth century. Alison Li details how, as a young man, Collip leapt into international prominence in 1921-22 as part of the team at the University of Toronto that isolated insulin for the treatment of diabetes. When the Nobel Prize was awarded to Frederick Banting and John Macleod in 1923, Macleod shared his award with Collip. Collip was known for his remarkable skills in making hormone extracts, many of which proved to have therapeutic and commercial value."--Jacket
