Dr. Andrew Wakefield is an academic gastroenterologist specializing in inflammatory bowel disease and the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine or MMR. He is a former Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and has published over 130 original scientific papers and book chapters.

In 1998, he and his colleagues at the Royal Free Hospital in London reported a novel inflammatory bowel disease in children with developmental disorders such as autism.  Dr. Wakefield resisted pressure to stop his investigations into a possible link between vaccinations, intestinal inflammation and autism.  He left the Hospital in 2001 to further pursue his research into neurological injury to children and its possible relationship to environmental  causes. In 2001 he was awarded the fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists and is a medical advisor to the British charity Visceral  and a board member of the American charity Medical Interventions for Autism.  He is also the author of Callous Disregard: Autism and Vaccines, The Truth Behind the Tragedy.
