Ted M. Dawson, MD, PhD

Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Professor in Neurodegenerative Diseases; Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience and Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences; Director of the Institute for Cell Engineering at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Location: Baltimore, MD United States

Dr. Ted Dawson is the Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Professor in Neurodegenerative Diseases and Director of the Institute for Cell Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also director of the NINDS Morris K. Udall Parkinson’s Disease Center of Excellence. Dr. Dawson’s honors include the Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award, the Paul Beeson Physician Faculty Scholar Award, the Santiago Grisolia Medal and a Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award. He was elected to the Association of American Physicians and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His laboratory is interested in the molecular mechanisms by which neurons die in neurologic and neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Dawson discovered parthanatos and defined the mechanism by which nitric oxide kills neurons. Dr. Dawson is also at the forefront of research into the molecular mechanisms of the neurodegenerative process of Parkinson’s disease.
