Jeffrey M. Friedman
Jeffrey M. Friedman is a molecular geneticist at Rockefeller University in New York and a researcher at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. His discovery of the hormone leptin and its role in body weight regulation has played a key role in the area of ​​obesity in humans. Friedman is a medical scientist who studies the genetic mechanisms that regulate body weight. His research into various aspects of obesity received national attention in late 1994, when he and his colleagues isolated the ob gene from mice and its homologous gene from humans. They then found that injecting the encoded protein, leptin, reduced the rats' body weight by reducing food intake and increasing energy consumption. Current research aims to understand the genetic basis of obesity in humans and the mechanisms by which leptin transmits its signal for weight loss.
