Douglas L Coleman 6 October 1931 – 16 April 2014 was a scientist and professor at The Jackson Laboratory, in Bar Harbor, Maine His work predicted that the ob gene encoded the hormone leptin,[1] later co-discovered in 1994 by Jeffrey Friedman, Rudolph Leibel and their research teams at Rockefeller University[2][3][4][5][6][7][8] This work has had a major role in our understanding of the mechanisms regulating body weight and that cause of human obesity[9]

Coleman was born in Stratford, Ontario He obtained his BS degree from McMaster University in 1954 and his PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1958 He was elected a member of the US National Academy of Sciences in 1998 He won the Shaw Prize in 2009,[10] the Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research in 2010, the 2012 BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in the Biomedicine category and the 2013 King Faisal International Prize for Medicine[11] jointly with Jeffrey M Friedman[9] for the discovery of leptin
