In collaboration with other researchers, he identified and isolated a hormone composed of 42 amino acids, to which he gave the name of "gastric inhibitory polypeptide" (GIP) [6], now also known as "glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide," since it was shown to be able to stimulate insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner; it is an incretin [7].
