Professor Katerina Semendeferi named a 2012 AAAS Fellow

Professor Katerina Semendeferi is one of the ten professors at the University of California, San Diego who have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the nation’s largest scientific organization. They are among 702 members selected this year by colleagues in their disciplines to be honored by the association for “scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.”

Prof. Semendeferi is cited by AAAS “for distinguished contributions to scientific knowledge about comparative primate neuroanatomy, particularly for pioneering research on the prefrontal substrates of advanced cognitive abilities in humans.”

The new Fellows, who were announced in the journal Science, will be presented with an official certificate and rosette pin on February 16 at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston.
