Goodman Named AAAS Fellow

December 3, 2019

Jay GoodmanJay Goodman, professor of pharmacology and toxicology and IIT-affiliated faculty member, was recently awarded the distinction of Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) along with five other distinguished MSU faculty members. These individuals were selected for this honor because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished. AAAS Fellow's lifetime honor comes with an expectation that recipients maintain the highest standards of professional ethics and scientific integrity. 

Dr. Goodman was chosen for this honor for his distinguished contributions to toxicology, particularly research on the key role epigentic alterations play in carcinogenesis, and efforts to advance science-based safety assessment of chemicals. 

AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science , as well as Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling — a digital, open-access journal —Science Advances, Science Immunology and Science Robotics.

The tradition of AAAS Fellows began in 1874. Currently, members can be considered for the rank of fellow if nominated by the steering group of their respective sections, by three fellows, or by the Association’s chief executive officer. 

Each steering group then reviews the nominations of individuals within its respective section and forwards a final list to the AAAS Council. The AAAS Council votes on the final aggregate list.

New fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a gold and blue rosette pin — representing science and engineering, respectively — on Saturday, Feb. 15, at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2020 AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA.
