The story of the discovery of insulin, in a video

One hundred years of evolution of this lifesaver for those with diabetes, in a practical timeline

A timeline a century long leads us to retrace the entire history of the drug that today supports (and saves the lives) of many people with diabetes: l’insulin.

Almost a hundred years have passed since it was administered to the first patient, and in the meantime this substance has come a long way, between biotechnologies to improve its performance and Nobel prizes. In this video, the narrative voice of a scientist in the sector and historical images (including those of the doctors and scholars who were protagonists of the time) accompany us step by step on the long triumphal journey of this medicine.
