He is also a member of the medical advisory board of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a director of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Jameson, an internationally-recognized physician-scientist specializing in molecular endocrinology, is renowned for his exceptional track record of leadership in academic medicine, his experience in fostering interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and his tremendous dedication to medical students and faculty. As a breakthrough investigator in his field, Jameson identified the genetic basis of more than a dozen different hormonal disorders. His research links the functional effects of mutations with clinical and molecular pathophysiology, and has led to a new understanding of human endocrine development and hormone action. Jameson has received several distinguished awards, including the Van Meter Award from the American Thyroid Association, the Sheen Award from the American College of Surgeons, and the Oppenheimer and Koch Awards from the Endocrine Society. In addition to his American Academy of Arts and Sciences membership, Jameson has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine, American Society of Clinical Investigation, and the Association of American Physicians. He has authored more than 300 scientific articles and chapters in high-impact, peer-reviewed journals including Journal of Clinical Investigation, The New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Genetics, and Science. Jameson is an editor of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, the most widely-used medical text worldwide, and co-editor of Jameson and DeGroot’s Endocrinology, now in its 6th edition.
