Deborah Hogan, PhD, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine, has been named a 2019 Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology (AAM).
Fellows of the AAM, an honorific leadership group within the American Society for Microbiology, are elected annually through a highly selective peer-review process based on their records of scientific achievement and original contributions advancing the field of microbiology. Specific election criteria include scientific excellence, originality, leadership, high ethical standards, and scholarly and creative achievement.
With the 109 new Fellows named in January, the AAM now has more than 2,400 Fellows from around the globe who represent all subspecialties of the microbial sciences and work in basic and applied research, teaching, public health, industry, and government service.
“I felt very honored by this recognition by peers in the field of microbiology,” says Hogan. “My induction into the AAM is the result of the collaborative talents of the amazingly smart and innovative graduate students, postdocs, research scientists, and undergraduates who I have worked with in the lab, and our interactions with the great scientific community at Dartmouth.”
