WASHINGTON, D.C.The largest general scientific society in the world is honoring four Washington State University researchers for efforts advancing distinguished science applications.
The four are among 503 members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to receive the honor of being named a Fellow, a tradition that goes back to 1874. They will be formally recognized during the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., this February.
Howard Grimes, WSU vice president for research and dean of the Graduate School, said the awards are another indication of the high quality of research being conducted by WSU faculty.

"They are to be congratulated and thanked for all they have done and continue to do for the institution."
