Daniel Liebler, Ph.D., Ingram Professor of Cancer Research, professor of Biochemistry, and director of the Ayers Institute for Precancer Detection and Diagnosis, has been selected as one of 96 fellows of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.
Ned Porter, Ph.D., Stevenson Professor of Chemistry, was also selected in this year’s group of fellows.
ACS fellows, who will be honored at the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis on Sept. 9, are nominated by their peers and selected for their outstanding achievements in and contributions to the sciences/profession and for providing excellent volunteer service to the ACS community.
Previous ACS fellows are: F. Peter (Fred) Guengerich, Ph.D., Tadashi Inagami Professor of Biochemistry, in 2009; Lawrence Marnett, Ph.D., University Professor of Biochemistry and Chemistry, Mary Geddes Stahlman Professor of Cancer Research, in 2010; and Richard Armstrong, Ph.D., professor of Biochemistry, in 2012.
Liebler leads the Vanderbilt Proteome Characterization Center, one of five academic centers focused on characterizing how genomic abnormalities drive cancers by affecting proteins and their functional networks.
The list of 2013 ACS fellows appeared in the July 29 issue of Chemical & Engineering News and can be found at http://cenm.ag/2013acsfellows.
Information about the ACS Fellows Program, including lists of fellows named in earlier years and more details about the 2013 class, is available on the ACS website.
