11 Professors Elected as AAAS Fellows

Eleven UC Davis professors have been elected in this year’s class of fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society.

The association elevates members to the rank of fellow in recognition of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. 

The association released the 2020 list of 498 fellows today (Nov. 24) and plans a formal announcement in the AAAS journal Science this Friday (Nov. 27). A virtual induction ceremony for the new fellows is scheduled for Feb. 13.

The nonprofit AAAS is open to all and fulfills its mission to “advance science and serve society” through initiatives in science policy, international programs, science education, public engagement and more.
