 John James Richard Macleod
Macleod was reluctant, at first, to give Dr. Banting some research space at the University of Toronto.
But, so far, there was no hint as to the actual structure within the pancreas upon which the antidiabetic influence of the gland depends and it is primarily to the anato-mists, Liguesse and Dianiare, that we owe the hypothesis that this must be the collection of cells, named after their discoverer, the isles of Langerhans.
It is not converted into glycogen (McCormick, Noble and Macleod, Dudley and Marrian, Cori etc.) nor is it immediately oxidized, since the respiratory metabolism (intake O2 and R. Q.) does not become increased at the time when the blood sugar is falling (Eadie, Dickson, Macleod and Pember; Trevan and Boock; Krogh; Boothby and Wilder etc.).

At the time researchers knew that diabetics suffered from an imbalance of blood sugar, but they were unable to prescribe anything beyond starvation diets and exercise routines.
In May 1921, Macleod introduced Banting to 22-year-old Charles Best, one of his brightest students who had moved from the U.S. to study medicine.
The following year Banting and Macleod were nominated for and awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

Desde 1905, MacLeod se centró en la investigación del metabolismo de los hidratos de carbono y la diabetes y publicó hasta un total de medio centenar de estudios sobre estos temas y sobre la glucosuria producida de forma experimental, siguiendo las investigaciones de Von Mering y Minkowski.
Banting convenció -a duras penas- a MacLeod de la importancia de su investigación y éste le facilitó una decena de perros, un quirófano y la colaboración de un joven asistente: Best.
MacLeod, quien no había estado de acuerdo en los métodos seguidos, compartió con Banting el premio Nobel de Medicina que les fue otorgado por haber hallado la sustancia pancreática, en 1923.
