Chemistry professor 1 of only 3 at UH to achieve prestigious AAAS status
Date:12/22/2008

idating the nature of biomolecules tethered to high-tech chip sensors," Pettitt said. "Using biological molecules tethered to chips creates technology for medical diagnosis, drug discovery and even computing."

Pettitt was nominated by three senior Fellows, all of whom are required to be current AAAS members. Steering groups of the association's 24 sections reviewed nominations of each individual within its respective section, and a final list was forwarded to the AAAS Council that then voted on the final list of recipients.

The council is the policymaking body of AAAS, chaired by its president and consisting of its board of directors, the retiring section chairs, and delegates from each electorate and regional division, as well as two delegates from the National Association of Academies of Science. This year's AAAS Fellows were announced Dec. 19 in the AAAS News & Notes section of Science, the world's leading journal of original scientific research, global news and commentary.

Pettitt earned his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Houston, was a postdoctoral fellow at The University of Texas at Austin and an NIH fellow at Harvard University. He joined the UH faculty in 1985 and is currently the associate dean of research for the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. He has served as director for the Institute of Molecular Design since 1994 and as chair of the Keck Center for Computational Biology since 2004.

"This is a significant honor for my university and myself," Pettitt said. "This recognition helps put the Tier One aspirations of UH into focus for the community. I think we have several faculty deserving of this honor. By my estimation, UH is Tier One, we just need to demonstrate it."
