Autism Speaks chief science officer Geraldine Dawson, Ph.D., named 'Rock Star of Science'
Date:11/17/2010

rlier this year, the NIH appointed Dr. Dawson to the International Autism Coordinating Committee which explores critical concerns for those affected by ASD including, diagnosis, biology, risk factors, treatment, services and outcomes for the future.

Dr. Dawson is captured in a photo set with Jay Sean in a tribute to "scientific heroes" in fields like autism, translational cancer research, Alzheimer's/neuro-imaging/prevention trials, heart disease/integrative medicine, rare diseases, stem cell research, global health and space age research. The Rock Stars of Science (ROCK S.O.S) public service campaign appears in GQ's December "Men of the Year" edition, available nationally on November 23. Prior to his music career, Jay Sean (@jaysean) studied medicine, and commented, "I was halfway through my degree when my first record deal presented itself. But I'll always be a fan of science."

"We need to tap into the psyche of a younger generation that is turning away from careers in science," says RSOS Executive Producer, Meryl Comer. "If it takes music and rock stars to connect kids to the 'cool' in science, and make researchers the new 'heroes' to emulate, then that's how Geoffrey Beene will design it."

"We are so pleased to have the work of Dr. Dawson recognized in this well-earned opportunity to promote the vast array of science conducted under her leadership and the auspices of Autism Speaks," said Autism Speaks Co-Founder Bob Wright. "The recent CDC prevalence study demonstrated that autism continues to grow as a public health crisis, and more than ever, the effective science and research is critical to focus resources and attention for the greatest impact on a community that grows every day."

Dr. Dawson has served as the scientific leader of Autism Speaks since January 2007. As Chief Science Officer at Autism Speaks, Dr. Dawson works with its Scientific Affairs Committee, Scientific Advisory Board, and the science staff to expand a
