One of the most prestigious awards in medicine has gone to two obesity researchers, Douglas Coleman and Jeffrey Friedman, for their work in discovering the hormone leptin. The discovery of leptin transformed obesity research and this prize recognizes that accomplishment. Congratulations! The Lasker Foundation – 2010 Awards
