5 IU scientists named AAAS Fellows for their notable contributions
Date:11/25/2013

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The American Association for the Advancement of Science has awarded the distinction of fellow to five Indiana University faculty members in recognition of their scientifically distinguished efforts to advance science.

The new fellows for 2013 include Dr. Bernardino Ghetti from the IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Provost Professor Olaf Sporns from the IU Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences' Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, and three members of the College's Department of Biology: Emeritus Professor Peter T. Cherbas and professors Elizabeth C. Raff and Malcolm E. Winkler. The announcement brings the total number of AAAS Fellows affiliated with IU to 86.

IU President Michael A. McRobbie congratulated the five scholars on being recognized by an organization of peers that represents the largest general scientific society in the world, with 261 affiliated societies and academies of science that serve 10 million individuals.

"These five individuals have dedicated their lives to taking on intellectual challenges the answers to which mean to address and resolve some of society's most vexing issues -- from understanding and combating Alzheimer's to advancing the field of genomics for the purpose of promoting public health," McRobbie said. "We are indebted to each of them for their long and distinguished service to both Indiana University and to mankind."

IU School of Medicine Dean Jay L. Hess called Ghetti, a faculty member in the School of Medicine's Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, a pioneer in his field who is respected by peers around the world.

"We are pleased that Dr. Ghetti has received this well-deserved recognition," Hess said, "and are all called to now work toward that same standard of excellence that the members of AAAS have recognized in him."
