Biology professor becomes 5th at UH to reach prestigious AAAS status
Date:2/2/2010

er was nominated by Stanley Appel, the neurology chair at Houston's Methodist Hospital, as well as two other 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.

Dryer is now the fifth current UH faculty member to be named an AAAS fellow. B. Montgomery Pettitt, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Physics, Computer Science, Biology and Biochemistry at UH, was selected a fellow last year.

"UH's growing cadre of AAAS fellows is another indicator that the university is headed rapidly toward tier one status," Dryer said. "UH provides an environment where scientists can be successful at the highest level, and I think we'll have more AAAS fellows in the coming years."

AAAS publishes Science, which along with Nature, is one of the most prestigious scientific journals. Getting even one article published in one of those journals is a major accomplishment, and Dryer has had a combined total of five papers published in those journals.

Dryer received his doctorate from St. Louis University and joined UH in 1997 after serving as a visiting researcher at Harvard Medical School and then an associate professor at Florida State University.
