Biography

Northwestern University
Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs
James B. Young was appointed Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs on July 1, 2008. Prior to that he had served as Dean for Faculty Affairs at the Feinberg School of Medicine since 2000.

He received his bachelor’s degree from the College of Wooster in 1967 and his M.D. from Harvard University in 1971. Following three years of clinical training in internal medicine on the Harvard Medical Service at Boston City Hospital, he obtained subspecialty training in endocrinology and metabolism at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. He subsequently joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School and had risen to the rank of Associate Professor of Medicine before coming to Northwestern in 1991.

Young’s research interests focus on the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and its role in the pathophysiology of obesity and hypertension. Dr. Young and Dr. Lewis Landsberg (former Dean of Feinberg Medical School) working together were among the first to demonstrate a connection between dietary intake and SNS activity. Subsequent efforts have been directed toward understanding the nature of this connection and its implications for the current world-wide epidemic of obesity.
