AAAS members are being honored this year for their efforts to advance science or its applications.
Bruce Blumberg, professor of developmental & cell biology, pharmaceutical sciences and biomedical engineering, for his contributions to the field of developmental biology, particularly for increasing understanding of the interactions between environmental signals and the developmental origins of disease.
Ken Cho, professor of developmental & cell biology, for his additions to developmental biology, such as identifying the mechanism of Spemann’s organizer and the importance of growth factor signaling during early embryogenesis.
Hartmut Luecke, professor of molecular biology & biochemistry, physiology & biophysics and computer science, for his contributions to the fields of structural biology and membrane protein crystallography.
Gregory Weiss, professor of chemistry and molecular biology & biochemistry, for his contributions to the field of chemical biology, especially for expanding the technique of bacteriophage peptide and protein display into new interdisciplinary areas
