Maud Menten was most known for her work on enzyme kinetics. She was one of the first women in Canada to receive a medical doctorate. She co-developed the Michaelis–Menten equation, which changed the approach to the subject and is still used in laboratories today.

A hard worker, Menten authored over seventy papers and made co-discoveries involving hemoglobin, kidney functions, and blood sugar. In addition to her chemistry skills, Menten was a talented painter, passionate mountain climber, and spoke six languages. She also played the clarinet, enjoyed astronomy, and went on an arctic exhibition.
