Founded in 1848, AAAS is the world's largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science.
"These outstanding researchers are making extraordinary strides in advancing our understanding of the human body, the mind, and the natural world," IU President Michael A. McRobbie said. "Although their individual accomplishments span the realms of psychology, biology, and medicine, they are united in their intellectual curiosity, academic rigor, and desire to answer questions of major importance to humanity, including improving our environmental stewardship, illuminating the inner workings of the brain, and advancing treatments for conditions such as infectious disease, addiction, and cancer. This recognition from AAAS is a testament to their first-rate research and scholarship, and it reflects Indiana University's longstanding tradition of pushing new frontiers in scientific discovery."
Election as a fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. The fellows will be formally announced in the AAAS News & Notes section of the Nov. 29 issue of the journal Science.
