Four University of Arizona professors in the departments of entomology, chemistry and biochemistry, and ecology and evolutionary biology have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS. Election as a AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.
AAAS awarded the distinction of Fellow to 702 of its members this year. These individuals have been elevated to this rank because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.
The AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science. Founded in 1848, the association includes 261 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10 million individuals.
