The Brown IMSD Program congratulates Andrew G. Campbell, Brown University Dean of the Graduate School, Professor of Medical Science and IMSD Program Director on being elected AAAS Fellow.
Dr. Campbell was elected for research in infectious diseases in neglected populations, administrative leadership, and service to increase the full participation of all in science.
AAAS Fellows are elected each year by their peers serving on the Council of AAAS, the organization’s member-run governing body. The title recognizes important contributions to STEM disciplines, including pioneering research, leadership within a given field, teaching and mentoring, fostering collaborations, and advancing public understanding of science.
The tradition of electing AAAS Fellows began in 1874. Since then, the recognition has gone to thousands of distinguished scientists, such as inventor Thomas Edison, elected in 1878, sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois (1905), anthropologist Margaret Mead (1934), computer scientist Grace Hopper (1963), physicist Steven Chu (2000), and astronaut Ellen Ochoa (2012).
Congratulations Dr. Campbell!
