February 26, 2016

The AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) Council elected 347 Fellows for 2015, in recognition of their contributions to innovation, education, and scientific leadership. Among the 20 elected to the Agriculture, Food, and Renewable Resources section were IFT members Ken Lee (Ohio State University), Kathryn Boor (Cornell University), and Michael Andrew Grusak (USDA-ARS/Baylor College of Medicine). The new Fellows were recognized on February 13 at the 2016 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

AAAS Fellows are elected and nominated by the steering groups of the Association’s 24 sections; three Fellows who are current AAAS members, as long as two of the three sponsors are not affiliated with the nominee’s institution; and the AAAS chief executive officer.
