He provided the impetus for the discovery of insulin and the surgical skill for the experiments that demonstrated its effectiveness in treating diabetes. The role of Charles Best in extracting the pancreatic hormone gives us an extraordinary example of how a talented student can make a mark in history.

Best had just completed his undergraduate honours degree in Physiology and Biochemistry, the elite programme at the University of Toronto, graduating among the top in his class. The timing was perfect; he was offered a position unpaid at first by JJR MacLeod, head of the Department of Physiology to work with Banting on his new diabetes project. Best set to work immediately May, devising a method to extract insulin first from dog pancreas, later from beef.
By the end of Banting and Best had obtained positive results of blood-sugar measurements before and after administration of extracts to dogs that were sufficient to warrant submission of a research paper announcing their success.

Shortly after that the pair was joined by JB Collip, a skilled protein chemist, who refined the insulin extraction method. In January year-old Leonard Thompson was the first person with diabetes to receive insulin. The treatment was remarkable; Leonard, near death, rapidly regained his strength and appetite.
From that point the production of ever-purer insulin increased and rapidly entered world-wide medical use. Today the discovery of insulin is almost universally associated in popular opinion with the names Banting and Best. He established the clinical use of heparin, which is still used today as a blood anticoagulant in the treatment of thrombosis. University of Chicago D. D in  University of Edinburgh LL.
