Dartmouth Medical School faculty named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
Date:1/12/2011

LEBANON, NH - The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has elevated four Dartmouth professors to the rank of Fellow, including three members of the faculty of Dartmouth Medical School.

Medical School faculty members Charles K. Barlowe, PhD, Ta-Yuan Chang, PhD, and William T. Wickner, MD, join Dartmouth biologist C. Robertson McClung among the 504 new Fellows named in December, 2010, joining a field of eight other Dartmouth researchers to have earned the distinction.

Barlowe, professor of biochemistry, was recognized for "distinguished contributions to the field of protein and lipid trafficking, particularly for elucidating molecular mechanisms of vesicular transport between endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complexes."

Chang, professor and chair of biochemistry, was recognized for "distinguished contributions to our understanding of cholesterol metabolism and its role in human disease."

Wickner, professor of biochemistry, was recognized for his "singular efforts in the isolation and characterization of the bacterial secretory protein translocation complex and the complete machinery for yeast vacuole fusion."

"Dartmouth has long been a place where important research occurs," noted Dartmouth Medical School Dean Wiley "Chip" Souba, MD. "Having the quality and breadth of our distinguished scientists' work honored in this way is especially gratifying and recognizes the individual and interdisciplinary achievements that distinguish Dartmouth science and medicine."

Dartmouth's McClung was recognized "for distinguished contributions to the field of plant circadian rhythms, and for academic leadership at Dartmouth College and the American Society of Plant Biologists."

"It's wonderful to see so many colleagues recognized as AAAS Fellows," said Dartmouth Provost Carol L. Folt. "It is a remarkable achievement for them as scholars and researchers and reflects the high caliber of scientific study under way throughout the College."
