Nine scientists who received support from The Pew Charitable Trusts’ biomedical and environmental scholars programs have been elected into the 2014 class of Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The AAAS fellows are selected based on their demonstrated efforts to advance science or its applications.
Among the 401 new fellows selected, eight were Pew scholars in the biomedical sciences: Alan Aderem (’86), Marnie Halpern (’95), Karen Mohlke (’06), Michael Snyder (’87), William Talbot (’98), Mark Winey (’93), Margaret Kielian (’88), and Charles Zuker (’88). 1990 Pew scholar in the environment John Harte was also elected into the 2014 class.
