Dr. Wade Harper, Chair of Cell Biology and the Bert and Natalie Vallee Professor of Molecular Pathology, was just named a 2018 Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The mission of the Academy is to champion scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge. It is one of the country’s oldest learned societies and independent policy research centers, and it convenes leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing the nation and the world. Other notables named to this year's class include several Harvard-affiliated researchers, as well as Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor! Congrats to Wade!
