Dean James Dalton Honored as AAAS Fellow
James Dalton, PhD, Dean and Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, has been elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in recognition of a distinguished career in translating basic research into products for patients, especially in discovery of selective androgen receptor modulators and treatment of prostate cancer. Six University of Michigan faculty members are among 347 newly elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Election as a fellow, a tradition that began in 1874, is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. AAAS fellows are recognized for their "efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished."
Founded in 1848, the American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world's largest general scientific society, and publisher of the journal Science.
New fellows were honored Feb. 13 at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2016 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
