Gerald I. Shulman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of medicine (endocrinology) and of cellular and molecular physiology and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, was one of 72 new members elected to the National Academy of Sciences in May in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. Those elected, including 18 foreign associates, bring the number of active members to 2,025. Shulman is known as an expert on diabetes. His lab group examines insulin resistance in patients with diabetes and in transgenic mouse models. The lab’s long-term objectives are to elucidate the cellular mechanisms of insulin resistance and to identify new therapeutic targets to reverse insulin resistance in patients with type 2 diabetes.
