Diabetes in Control speaks with top endocrinologists and other medical professionals to bring you the latest in diabetes news and research. This week, we have another exclusive interview from the ADA 2017 Scientific Sessions in San Diego, CA.
Dr. Ronald S. Swerdloff graduated with his BS from UCLA/UCB in 1959 and an MDvin 1962 from UCSF. He began his clinical training at the University of Washington, only to be drafted and expected to serve as a medical officer in the Vietnam war. Instead he was assigned to a brilliant physician scientist at the NIH and finally finished his training back at UCLA. Dr. Swerdloff has been a leader in reproductive endocrinology for the last four decades, including pubertal development, male contraception, androgen physiology and modeling, androgen drug development and hormones in aging. He has published over 500 papers, books and chapters. He has trained more than 200 endocrinologists and andrologists, many of whom are current leaders in the field, and he has served in many leadership roles in national and international scientific societies. From his early work, which provided new insights into the developmental changes during puberty, to his three decades of research into the development of male contraceptives, and approaches to male infertility, Dr. Swerdloff has been a preeminent leader in andrology. He has served as an editor, or on the editorial boards, of several dozen journals and as a reviewer for over 30 scientific journals. He has served as chairman and member of the Endocrine Society Guidelines for Hypogonadism (testosterone deficiency). He has also been a member of National Institutes of Health expert panels, and serves as a consultant for the U.S. Olympic and World Antidoping Committees, National Football League and the P.G.A. Dr. Swerdloff has received numerous awards, including the American Society of Andrology Distinguished Andrologist Award, Mayo Soley Award, UCLA Sherman Mellinkoff Award and the Distinguished Educator Award from the Endocrine Society. He has been elected to a number of prestigious societies, including the American Association of Physicians and as a Master of the American College of Physicians.
