Immunologist J. John Cohen receives the 2010 AAAS Public Understanding of Science and Technology Award
Date:2/16/2011

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has named Dr. J. John Cohen, professor of immunology and medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, as winner of the 2010 AAAS Public Understanding of Science and Technology Award.

Cohen was honored for his outstanding achievements in demystifying science for non-scientists with public programs including a series of free lectures on science and medicine, informal discussions with scientists performing groundbreaking research, and a juried art exhibition. He will receive the award during a 19 February ceremony at the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

"The AAAS Award for Public Understanding of Science and Technology is a great honor that befits the outstanding work of Dr. John Cohen," said Gov. John Hickenlooper. "John has dedicated his career to connecting the world of medical sciences to the public. He has the ability to pique the curiosity of everyone, from school children to scientists. On behalf of the State of Colorado, it is my pleasure to congratulate John on this prestigious award."

"Dr. J. John Cohen has made his extensive understanding of the medical sciences accessible to all people and has been a leader in public outreach and education in the science community," Cohen's nomination materials said. "By combining the mind and creativity of an experienced researcher with the skill of a master teacher, John embodies the perfect ambassador of science to the public."

In 1989, Dr. Cohen founded the CU Mini Med School, a free series of talks on the science that underlies the field of medicine. Since then more than 17,000 have attended Mini Med and its success has inspired similar programs replicated by more than 80 schools and hospitals around the world. From its modest beginnings in a classroom of the medical school, Mini Med now fills the IMAX Theater at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and is broadcast free to sites around the state.
