WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Seven Purdue University professors have been elected to the distinction of fellow from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the worlds largest general scientific society.

The professors are being honored for their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.

The fellows from Purdue are listed below.

In the field of biological sciences:

In the field of physics:

In the field of engineering:

The 2020 fellows will be announced on Friday (Nov. 27) in the AAAS News & Notes section of the journal Science. A virtual induction ceremony for the new fellows will be held Feb. 13 during the annual Fellows Forum. These new fellows will receive an official certificate and a gold and blue (representing science and engineering, respectively) rosette pin to commemorate their election.

The tradition of selecting fellows began in 1874. Members can be considered for the rank of fellow if nominated by the steering group of their respective sections, by three fellows or by the associations chief executive officer. Each steering group then reviews nominations within its respective section and forwards a final list to the associations council. The nomination involves all disciplines of science and engineering, which makes it broader than any technical society. Additional information is available online.
