Six U-M faculty named AAAS fellows

Six U-M faculty elected as AAAS FellowsANN ARBOR—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.

New Fellows will be honored Saturday, Feb. 13, at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2016 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

The 2015 AAAS Fellows will be announced in the AAAS News & Notes section of the Nov. 27, 2015 issue of Science.
