Prof. Grant Elected as AAAS Fellow

This is a modified version of an article written by Mick Kulikowski for NC State News.

CBE professor, Christine Grant, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The election reflects her outstanding contributions to colloids, surfaces, and interfacial phenomena of solid films and surfactants, and for extraordinary support for advancing women and minorities within faculty and students in science and engineering.

Prof. Grant is among 502 scientists, engineers and innovators to be honored this year by AAAS, the world’s largest scientific society and the publisher of the journal Science. She also joins five other NC State faculty members who have been elected this year as well as six current CBE faculty that are members: Profs. Carbonell, Fedkiw, Hall, Kelly, McKenna, and Simon.

The AAAS is dedicated to advancing scientific excellence and achievement, fostering equity and inclusion for scientific excellence, building trust among scientists and communities, and catalyzing progress where science meets policy. Each year, the AAAS Council elects members who have shown scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. Fellows are nominated by their peers and undergo an extensive review process.

Prof. Grant, and the other newly elected Fellows, will be recognized in September 2024 at a gathering in Washington, D.C.

Congratulations Professor Grant on this recognition!
