Ten IRP Researchers Among Newly Elected AAAS Fellows

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) elected 505 scientists, engineers, and innovators from around the world and across all disciplines to its 2022 class of fellows. Ten NIH scientists are among the electees: Dr. Linda S. Birnbaum (NIEHS), Dr. Carmen Williams (NIEHS), Dr. Cynthia Dunbar (NHLBI), Dr. Howard Young (NCI), Dr. Eric Engels (NCI), Dr. Elodie Ghedin (NIAID), Dr. Paul Liu (NHGRI), Dr. Lee Scott Weinstein (NIDDK), Dr. Karen Faith Berman (NIMH), and Dr. Christopher McBain (NICHD).

AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the Science family of journals. Newly elected fellows are recognized for scientific and socially notable achievements spanning their careers. Election is one of the most distinguished honors in the scientific community.

AAAS fellows are a distinguished cadre who have been recognized for their achievements across disciplines, from research, teaching and technology, to administration in academia, industry and government, to excellence in communicating and interpreting science to the public. 

In a tradition stretching back to 1874, individuals are elected annually by the AAAS council. New fellows are recognized at a ceremonial forum during the AAAS annual meeting, where they are presented with a certificate and blue and gold rosette.
