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

has been cited nearly 2,000 times, making him one of the Institute for Science Information's most highly cited researchers. He became an AAAS Fellow in 2000 and is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the American Association of Immunologists, and the American Association for the History of Medicine.

Dr. Cohen's passion for chemistry stretches back to his childhood when, at age 6, he had a chemistry lab in his basement. At age 12, he had his first hospital job as a clinical biochemistry technician. Dr. Cohen earned his BSc, MSc, PhD and MD, CM all at McGill University in Montreal, his hometown. He also interned at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal and had two postdoctoral fellowships, one at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and another at the National Institute for Medical Research, Mill Hill, and University College, London.

Since becoming an assistant professor in 1972, Dr. Cohen has taught immunology courses in all professional programs at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, including a popular class for graduate students who don't want to become immunologists. He received an Excellence in Teaching Award annually 1982-2007 and was awarded in 2001 the Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award, recognizing the best teachers in schools of medicine nationally. Currently he is studying how students learn and working on a manuscript called "Lecture 3.0: A Hack for Overclocked Wetware," which proposes that both students and teachers consider a new neuroscience approach to lectures.

Established in 1987, the AAAS Award for Public Understanding of Science & Technology recognizes scientists or engineers who, while working in their fields, have also contributed substantially to public understanding of science and technology. Contributions include books, articles in magazines and newspaper, broadcasting, lecturing, museum presentation and exhibit design.
