Dr. David Ritchie elected to the rank of AAAS Fellow


Each year the American Association for the Advancement of Science Council elects members whose “efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished.” The honor of being elected a Fellow of AAAS began in 1874 and is acknowledged with a certificate and rosette. Dr. David Ritchie is being honored for significant contribution to the field of plant pathology, particularly for increasing our knowledge of bacterial pathogen ecology and evolution, leading to improved disease management.

Election as a Fellow of AAAS is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. Fellows are recognized for meritous efforts to advance science or its applications.
