Executive Director Paula Grammas Elected to AAAS Fellowship
NOVEMBER 20, 2017
Paula Grammas has been elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellowship. The AAAS Council selects fellows each year whose “efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished.”
Five of this year’s Nobel laureates were 2017 AAAS Fellows, a prestigious group that includes astronomer Maria Mitchell, inventor Thomas Edison, and anthropologist Margaret Mead. The AAAS was founded in 1848 and is the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society.
“I am honored to be recognized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which has been a force for good in supporting the work of scientists and fostering innovation and collaboration among scientists, engineers, and educators around the globe,” said Grammas. “This acknowledgement is particularly meaningful coming from my peers.”
The 2017 Fellows will be recognized in February during the Fellows Forum at the 2018 AAAS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.
