Date:12/5/2012

New York, NY (December 5, 2012) Richard Mayeux, MD, MS, Chair of the Department of Neurology at Columbia University Medical Center; the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Professor of Neurology, Psychiatry and Epidemiology; and Director of the Sergievsky Center, has been awarded the distinction of Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Dr. Mayeux, who is also Co-Director of the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain, was cited "for pioneering contributions to the epidemiology of Alzheimer's disease based on studies of multi-racial populations, utilization of biological and genetic markers, and defining the complex interactions of both environmental and genetic factors in rates of dementia."

"We are delighted that Dr. Mayeux is among this year's class of AAAS fellows," said Lee Goldman, MD, Executive Vice President for Health and Biomedical Sciences, Columbia University, and Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, CUMC. "His epidemiological research on Alzheimer's disease, including work on various genetic risk factors among different populations, helps bring us closer to understanding this devastating disease."

Fellowsselected by the greater AAAS membership from among its own ranksare awarded this special honor because of their efforts to advance scientific applications that are deemed especially promising or socially distinguished. Their names were formally announced by the AAAS in the "News & Notes" section of the journal Science on November 30, 2012. The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place at the 2013 AAAS annual meeting in Boston on February 16.
