You know the story of Banting, but did you know that was only the beginning?

Since Sir Frederick Banting's discovery of insulin at the University of Toronto in 1921, Canadian scientists have remained on the frontlines of the development of new treatments for diabetes, and the quest for a cure.

Around the globe, people with diabetes are benefiting from breakthroughs with a Canadian connection. Islet transplants, GLP-1 agonist medications, and a better understanding of the development of type 2 diabetes in children from remote Indigenous communities -- all of this and more has come from Canada.

Beyond Banting takes you behind the scenes with remarkable scientists from across the country who are building on Banting's legacy and ensuring Canada remains at the forefront of this fascinating and important field.
