A Record Year for Spartan Scholars - Nine Elected to AAAS
On Jan. 26, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS, has unveiled the names of its 2021 fellows. This year’s cohort includes nine Spartans, the largest number in 10 years. In fact, Michigan State University’s nine fellows in 2011 set a record that’s now been tied by the 2021 class.
AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and being elected as a AAAS Fellow is among science’s top distinctions. Having nine fellows selected in one year, joining the dozens of fellows elected in previous years, is a reflection of MSU’s research excellence. These 2021 fellows also work in seven different research areas, representing the breadth of Spartan impact in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.
