Abstract:
Farach-Carson, Deem honored by American Association for the Advancement of Science

Two Rice professors named AAAS fellows

Houston, TX | Posted on January 12th, 2011

Rice University professors Mary "Cindy" Farach-Carson and Michael Deem have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest general scientific society and the publisher of the journal Science.

Farach-Carson is associate vice provost for research and professor of biochemistry and cell biology. Deem is the John W. Cox Professor in Biochemical and Genetic Engineering and professor of physics and astronomy. Farach-Carson and Deem are among 503 AAAS members who were named fellows by the association today. Selection as a AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon members of the association by their peers.

Farach-Carson is a cancer researcher who studies how extracellular matrix molecules function in healthy bone and contribute to bone diseases such as osteoporosis or cancer metastasis to bone. She was selected for "distinguished contributions to the field of bone physiology and contributions to the promotion of interdisciplinary research and science dissemination."

Deem's research specialty is using statistical mechanics to understand and engineer complex molecular systems like the human immune system and evolving genomes. He was selected for "distinguished contributions to statistical mechanics that brought new tools and ideas to vaccine design, mathematical biology and nanoporous materials structure."

This year's new fellows will be presented with official certificates and pins at the AAAS annual meeting Feb. 19 in Washington, D.C.
