Main Text
Dr. Best has written so many papers on insulin he has lost track of the number. Above, he discusses a recent publication with Dr. James Campbell. In all, it is estimated some 80,000 papers have been published in the field since insulin was discovered 39 years ago. Dr. Best manages to keep abreast of them all -- a formidable task which he takes in his stride.
