For May 26, 1999

Moderating the discussion is Dr. Simeon Taylor.

Dr. Taylor earned his bachelor's degree, a Ph.D. in biological chemistry, and medical degree at Harvard. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in endocrinology at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Dr. Taylor joined NIH in 1979 as a research associate in the Diabetes Branch of what is now NIDDK. He has been with that branch ever since, and became its chief in 1989.

Dr. Taylor's laboratory has focused upon two principal research questions: What are the molecular mechanisms that mediate insulin action? and what causes insulin resistance associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes? Today Dr. Taylor and his colleagues will discuss "The Importance of Fat: Lipoatrophy, Insulin Resistance, and Diabetes."
