Drs. Enns and Tebo awarded the distinction of AAAS Fellow

November 27, 2013

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has awarded the distinction of fellow to 388 of its members this year.

Two School of Medicine faculty were selected:

  • Caroline Alice Enns, Ph.D., professor of cell and developmental biology, for outstanding fundamental research discoveries on the biochemical, cell biological, and physiological mechanisms underlying iron homeostasis and its regulation.
  • Bradley M. Tebo, Ph.D, professor of science and engineering, for distinguished contributions to the microbiology, biogeochemistry and mineralogy of manganese, with a particular emphasis on microbial manganese oxidation processes in the marine environme

These individuals have been elevated to this rank because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.

New fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a gold and blue (representing science and engineering, respectively) rosette pin on Feb. 15, at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2014 AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago.
