“The ASCB Fellows program seeks to recognize the wide range of the Society’s membership. Our Fellows represent not only an elite group of scientists who have contributed significantly to the field of cell biology but also to individuals who have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the mission of the Society throughout their careers,” said Erika Shugart, the chief executive officer for ASCB.
