Reinhard Laubenbacher of UConn Health and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) for Genomic Medicine has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Election as an AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. As part of the Mathematics Section, Laubenbacher was elected as an AAAS Fellow for distinguished contributions to construction and analysis in systems biology, based on computational algebra, discrete mathematics, and algebraic geometry.
“The invitation to join such a distinguished group of scientists is a tremendous personal honor,” Laubenbacher says. “I also see it as a recognition of the great value that mathematics brings to the life sciences at a time of unprecedented challenge and opportunity.”
