Faculty Director Gary Marchant recently received the honor of becoming a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, after being elected in by his peers. AAAS has stated its mission to “advance science engineering and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people.”
There were 443 honorees this year, across 24 categories, with Marchant selected to be one of eight fellows named in the Societal Impacts of Science and Engineering sector. “AAAS is the world’s largest scientific organization, so it’s a nice honor to be recognized by such a prestigious group,” Marchant said in his ASU Now interview.
Marchant has led the Center for more than 20 years, with ASU Law Dean Douglas Sylvester saying, “Professor Marchant is the reason ASU Law has been at the forefront of law, science and innovation. He has long been recognized as one of the preeminent scholars in his field, and this well-deserved recognition reflects that.
