Indiana University recently held a reception to recognize eight faculty members who were named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The AAAS is the world's largest general scientific society and selects fellows who have made outstanding contributions to the progress of science and research.
With the addition of these eight new faculty, the number of AAAS fellows affiliated with IU is 111, with more than half being selected in the past 12 years.
"These eight faculty members represent the very best of Indiana University," said IU President Michael A. McRobbie. "They have enriched the lives of their students, their colleagues, and their peers around the world. In doing so, they have enriched the life of the university as a whole."
