Recipient

Six University of Michigan faculty members are among 347 newly elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Election as a fellow, a tradition that began in 1874, is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. AAAS fellows are recognized for their "efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished."

Founded in 1848, the American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world's largest general scientific society, and publisher of the journal Science.
