Four UCSD Professors Named Fellows
of American Association for the Advancement of Science

By Kim McDonald | December 4, 2006

Four UCSD professors were named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers for "scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications."

They are Margaret J. Schoeninger, professor and chair of anthropology; Julian I. Schroeder, professor of biological sciences; Ray Franklin Weiss, associate dean of academic affairs and professor of geochemistry at Scripps Institution of Oceanography; and Martin Yanofsky, professor of biological sciences.

Shoeninger was cited for "significant contributions to the field of biological anthropology, and particularly to studies of dietary reconstruction, bone chemistry, and human nutritional ecology."

Ray Weiss Martin Yanofsky Julian Schroeder Margaret Schoeninger

Schroeder was cited for "his elucidation of the mechanisms of ion transport through the plasma membrane of plant cells and of the signal transduction pathways leading to stomatal closure."

Weiss was cited for "distinguished contributions to experimental chemistry of environmentally important trace gases."

Yanofsky was cited for "distinguished contributions to plant developmental biology and the discovery of the molecular and genetic bases of many aspects of flower and fruit development."

This year's 449 new AAAS Fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a gold and blue rosette pin on February 17 during the 2007 AAAS Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
