American Association for the Advancement of Science honors four Iowa Staters
Date:12/18/2008

AMES, Iowa Four Iowa State University researchers have been named AAAS Fellows by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The honor is bestowed on association members by their scientific peers. The association named 486 fellows this year for "their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications."

Iowa State's new AAAS Fellows are:

  • George Kraus, director of the Institute for Physical Research and Technology, University Professor of Chemistry and associate of the Division of Materials Science and Engineering at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory. Kraus was honored for "developing syntheses of natural products and other imaginative applications of organic chemistry; also for promoting chemistry through visionary administrative leadership in the university environment."

    Kraus' research program includes developing biobased products using catalysts. He's also working to synthesize biologically active molecules, including antiviral agents and plant-based drugs for treatment of type 2 diabetes.

  • Surya Mallapragada, professor of chemical and biological engineering and field work proposal leader for Bioinspired Materials at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory. Mallapragada was honored for "research in the field of biomaterials and biomolecular engineering, particularly for important scientific advances in polymer design, relevant to nerve cell regeneration and drug delivery."

    Mallapragada's research group is working on bioinspired self-assembling nanocomposites, a bottom-up approach to materials design as seen in nature. The group is also developing new biomaterials for drug and gene delivery and neural tissue engineering.

  • Kenneth Moore, professor of agronomy. Moore was honored for "outstanding contributions in research, teaching and service to agronomy and crop science."

    Moore's research program includes stu
