Dr. Joel D. Oppenheim of New York University School of Medicine has been honored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) "for his extraordinary leadership to increase the numbers of African and Hispanic Americans in the Ph.D. biomedical workforce."

Dr. Oppenheimwho serves as the Senior Associate Dean for Biomedical Science and Professor of Microbiology at New York University School of Medicinewill receive the 2010 AAAS Mentor Award for Lifetime Achievement during a 19 February ceremony at the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

Freeman A. Hrabowski III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and co-chair of the 2010 AAAS Annual Meeting, wrote in a nomination letter for Dr. Oppenheim that he could think of no one more deserving of the AAAS Lifetime Mentor Award.

"On both an institutional and national level," Dr. Hrabowski reported, "Joel Oppenheim has had a dramatic impact on establishing a robust pipeline (from undergraduate, to graduate, to postdoctoral, to faculty) of students from all backgrounds."

Shirley Malcom, director of Education and Human Resources at AAAS, agreed. "Joel's enormously successful efforts to recruit and support women and underrepresented minorities in the biomedical sciences have dramatically transformed the demographics of the graduate school population at his institution as well as nationally," she said.
