American Association for Advancement of Science Elects New Fellows


Get Permission

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has identified 388 individuals who have been named AAAS Fellows. These individuals have been recognized by their peers for their efforts to advance science or its applications. The new AAAS Fellows, whose names were published in the November 29, 2013 issue of Science, will be honored at the AAAS Fellows Forum on February 15, 2014, during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago.

AAAS members who have made scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications and who have been continuous members for the 4 years preceding their nomination are eligible for election as AAAS Fellows. Three current AAAS members who were previously elected AAAS Fellows may nominate new AAAS Fellows, though only one of the three sponsors may share the nominee’s affiliated institution and each AAAS Fellow may sponsor no more than two nominees each year.

Fellows may also be nominated by the steering group of one of the 24 sections of AAAS or the chief executive officer. The Fellows are elected by the AAAS Council from a list of approved nominees submitted by the section steering committees.

Among the individuals named to one of 24 sections of AAAS are 42 who were named AAAS Fellows in the Section on Medical Sciences. These individuals are listed below.
