One hundred years after the discovery of the insulin, Sir Frederick Banting continues to be remembered from the perspective of a singular moment in time, the image of himself with Charles Best and a dog on the rooftop of the University of Toronto Medical School. But, like any other story, that representation is neither the beginning, nor the end of his contributions to Canadian science and innovation. For episode 8 of the RCRM Speakers Series, Grant Maltman will introduce the other facets of the complex personality that was Sir Frederick Banting.
