Dr. Judy Brusslan Elected to AAAS Fellow

Published April 19, 2024

We're excited to announce that biology's Dr. Judy Brusslan was recently elected to the rank of Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)! Dr. Brusslan, the only CSU faculty elected this year, is being recognized for her distinguished contributions in research and teaching to the field of plant molecular genetics, particularly in our understanding of leaf senescence in Arabidopsis.

"It is a huge honor to be elected as an AAAS Fellow. It is super validating to be recognized for all those hours of working with and encouraging students in lab to do their best work and generate meaningful data. Also great to be honored for planning courses that incorporate primary literature that keep our students challenged and up to date. I am so fortunate to be part of the CNSM at CSULB: great students who appreciate the college experience!"

AAAS describes its vision as a boldly inclusive, mobilized, and global scientific community that ignites, enables, and celebrates scientific excellence and science-informed decisions and actions. Members elected to Fellow are those whose "efforts on behalf of the advancement of science, or its applications, are scientifically or socially distinguished."

According to AAAS CEO Sudip S. Parikh, Ph.D, "This year's class embodies scientific excellence, fosters trust in science throughout the communities they serve, and leads the next generation of scientists while advancing scientific achievements," and Dr. Brusslan is certainly no exception!

Congrats Dr. Brusslan!
