Four IRP researchers elected as fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
Tuesday, November 27, 2018
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has elected four IRP investigators as AAAS Fellows this year. These incredibly accomplished individuals are among 416 scientists chosen as 2018 AAAS Fellows in recognition of their extraordinary achievements in advancing science:
Robert Angerer, Ph.D., of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) was elected "for distinguished contributions in molecular mechanisms of early animal development, and for outstanding mentoring of the next generation of dental, oral and craniofacial researchers."
Andy Baxevanis, Ph.D., of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) was elected "for distinguished contributions to the field of comparative genomics, particularly for using computational approaches to study the molecular innovations driving diversity in early animal evolution."
Mary Dasso, Ph.D., of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) was elected "for distinguished contributions to the field of cell biology, particularly for discoveries on the relationship between the interphase nuclear transport machinery and mitotic chromosome segregation."
Judith Walters, Ph.D., of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) was elected "for distinguished contributions to understanding brain circuitry dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease, and for promoting outstanding mentorship of women scientists in the NIH Intramural Research Program."
The four IRP investigators elected as 2018 AAAS Fellows.
