The 443 newly elected Fellows represent each of AAAS's 24 sections, from neuroscience and psychology to social, economic and political sciences to engineering. The honor recognizes diverse accomplishments, including pioneering research, leadership within a given field, teaching and mentoring, fostering collaborations and advancing public understanding of science.
