2013 AAAS Mentor Award goes to Paul B. Tchounwou of Jackson State University
Date:2/12/2014

The 2013 Mentor Award of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will be bestowed upon Paul B. Tchounwou "for his transformative impact and contributions towards the production of African American doctorates in the field of environmental sciences."

Tchounwou, associate dean of graduate studies and international programs in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss., will receive his award during a 14 February ceremony at the 2014 AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago, Ill.

At Jackson State, where he is a Presidential Distinguished Professor, Tchounwou also serves as director of the doctoral program in environmental health sciences. For more than 16 years, he has mentored African American students in environmental sciences. He has directly overseen 25 doctoral dissertations and also has served on the dissertation committee for 28 other students and as an external examiner for a dozen more dissertations. He has mentored and provided research training to more than 50 undergraduate students and to 100 K-12 students.

"Over the course of his illustrious career as a teacher, scientist and administrator, Tchounwou has earned recognition for his work in recruiting, training and mentoring students, post-doctoral research associates and junior faculty throughout the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) pipeline," Abdul K. Mohamed, dean emeritus of Jackson State's College of Science, Engineering & Technology, wrote in nominating Tchounwou for the award.

He said Tchounwou "has significantly contributed to academic growth and the overall increase in research productivity" that led to the recent designation of Jackson State as a comprehensive "high research activity institution" under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. In 2011, Tchounwou obtained a $3.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to establish a Center
