Biographical/Historical Sketch

Jardetzky earned his M.D. at the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1954 and his Ph.D. in physiology and physical chemistry at University of Minnesota in 1956. He was on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School from 1957 to 1966 and was then a director at the Merck Institute for Therapeutic Research before joining the faculty at Stanford's School of Medicine in 1969. He was director of the Stanford Magnetic Resonance Laboratory from 1975 to 1997. He has held a large number of visiting appointments and served as chairman of a number of professional committees, boards and conferences, including directing several institutes held at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice, Sicily. His research interests include structural basis of pharmacological action, biological signal processing, and fundamentals of drug design.
