Indiana University Release: Biologist Roger Innes a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology


3/3/2011 11:51:20 AM

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Roger Innes, chair of the Indiana University Bloomington Department of Biology, has been elected a fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology. It is a major honor for scientists who study bacteria and viruses.

Innes and this year's 77 other electees are invited to attend a special event at the American Society for Microbiology's annual meeting in New Orleans (May 2011). The American Academy of Microbiology is the Society's honorific division. "Roger and the members of his lab have made major contributions to the genetic and biochemical basis of disease resistance in plants and in particular to bacterial pathogens," said biology colleague Yves Brun, himself a fellow of the academy. "Roger was elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science earlier this year. This has been quite a good year for Roger in terms of recognition of his research."

Fellows of the AAM are elected annually through a selective peer-review process, based on the scientists' achievements and original contributions that have advanced microbiology. There are more than 2,000 fellows representing all subspecialties of microbiology, including basic and applied research, teaching, public health, industry, and government service.

Recent IU electees to the academy include Patricia Foster (2008), Carl Bauer, Malcolm Winkler, and Stanley Spinola (2009), and Brun (2010).

The American Academy of Microbiology is the world's oldest and largest life science organization. The mission of the Academy is to recognize scientists for outstanding contributions to microbiology and provide microbiological expertise in the service of science and the public. The AAM was formed in 1955.

To speak with Innes, please contact David Bricker, University Communications, at 812-856-9035 or brickerd@indiana.edu.
