What can we learn from the scientists of the past to help us understand the future? This series re-examines the stories of Galileo, Newton, Curie, and Einstein, so we can better map out the road ahead.

Inside the Breakthrough is a fun-filled ride that also checks in with Henry Ford, the Roman emperor Claudius, and Ross Geller from Friends. Each of these characters from the past has a unique lesson to teach us about the future.

The show is produced by SciMar, a research group exploring a paradigm shift in the way we treat type 2 diabetes.
