In March, 2013, three UNC SoM M&I faculty members were elected as 2013 Fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology (AAM), the honorific leadership group within the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Selection for fellowship is a highly competitive annual peer review process, based on scientific achievement and original contributions that have advanced the field of microbiology.
The three elected are Myron S. Cohen, MD, the J. Herbert Bate Distinguished Professor of Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology, and Epidemiology; Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases; and Director of the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases; and Professors Peggy A. Cotter, PhD, and Blossom Damania, PhD, of Microbiology and Immunology. Myron, Peggy and Blossom join eight other current M&I faculty members who are AAM Fellows: Ralph Baric, Jeff Dangl, Peter Gilligan, Bill Goldman, Virginia Miller, Joe Pagano, Nancy Raab-Traub, and Fred Sparling.
