He's not a rock star.

Dr. Ron Petersen is one of 11 "Rock Stars of Science" featured in a campaign to highlight the work scientists do to save lives and improve living conditions, and to seek to increase research funding.

 

As part of that, Petersen made an appearance at a quirky, smile-filled event Thursday at the nation's capital.

 

"I am in Washington right now and just came from a 'recording session' with Joe Perry of Aerosmith," Petersen, a Rochester Mayo Clinic neurologist and Alzheimer's disease researcher, said in an e-mail. "He (is) the true rock star ... at the Capitol."
