FACTSHEET: Jan Breslow

DETAILS

physician and professor at Rockefeller University
Mr Breslow specializes in cardiovascular disease and is a former president of the American Heart Association. He has written no peer-reviewed papers on climate change according to Skeptical Science and has seemingly no connection to climate science.

A pioneer in the application of recombinant DNA technology to the study of atherosclerosis, Dr. Breslow has identified many of the genes that control the transport of cholesterol and other fats through the bloodstream and into or out of body tissues. Some forms of these genes predispose individuals to atherosclerosis, while others protect against the disease, despite such lifestyle factors as diet, smoking, and exercise. By studying the genes in greater detail, Dr. Breslow hopes to learn how to identify individuals at increased risk for atherosclerosis before the condition develops, and to design new drugs, diets, gene therapies, and other treatments or preventions.
