Leonard Jarett, MD
Dr. Jarett is a distinguished Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and for 19 years Chairman of the department. Dr. Jarett`s contributions to the field began early. The very first paper he wrote as a first-year medical student in 1958 at Washington University became a Citation Classic. As a resident he showed that nonendocrine hormone-secreting tumors produce immunologically active ACTH. In the years that followed, he made many important contributions to the understanding of the pathways of the insulin signal transduction network. His work on the interaction of insulin with its receptor on the plasma membrane led to the theory that a mediator regulates the activity of key enzymes that control the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids by altering the state of phosphorylation of these enzymes. Dr. Jarett, the recipient of many awards and honors for this work over the years, was awarded the 1980 David Rumbough Award of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. And his work continues to have impact following the discovery of the difference in the control of the phosphorylation and tyrosine kinase activity between phosphorylated IRS-1 and phosphorylated IRS-2 as well as studies of the insulin-sensitive glucose transporter, GLUT 4.
