Election as a Fellow of ASCB is an honor bestowed upon ASCB members by their peers. This year,12 members have been named Fellows in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the field of cell biology and to the community of cell biologists through their service to ASCB. The ASCB Fellows program is committed to recognizing the breadth and diversity of the Society’s membership. Toward this end, Fellows are nominated by their peers or through self-nomination, followed by evaluation and selection by a Fellows Nomination Review Committee. The list of approved Fellow nominees is reviewed and approved by the ASCB Council. The newly elected Fellows were acknowledged at the 2018 ASCB|EMBO Meeting before the Keynote on Saturday, December 8.
