Congratulations to Dr. Marek Kimmel honored by AAAS

Rice University professor Marek Kimmel has been named fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society and the publisher of the journal Science.

The distinction is among the highest in the scientific community — fewer than 1% of AAAS members are elected fellows each year by their peers — and honors scientists, engineers and innovators whose efforts on behalf of science and its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished. Killian and Kimmel are among 508 members of this year’s class.
