Dr. Albin, Associate director of the U-M Udall Center, named AAAS fellows

Thirteen researchers at the University of Michigan were named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.

In 2018, 416 members were awarded this honor by AAAS because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. In 2017, seven U-M faculty members were named AAAS fellows.

AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science as well as Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling, Science Advances, Science Immunology and Science Robotics. AAAS was founded in 1848 and includes nearly 250 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10 million individuals.

Among the new fellows is the Udall Center’s Associate Director, Dr. Albin. New fellows were honored in February during the 2019 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
