Science: 2 UCLA Professors Honored
Two UCLA health sciences professors have been named to a distinguished association of scientists.
Dr. John H. Campbell and Dr. Roger Detels, selected among 297 scientists nationally, have been named fellows in the Assn. for the Advancement of Science.
Campbell, an associate professor of anatomy and cell biology, was recognized for his work on the theory of evolution and complex genetic systems.
Detels, a professor of epidemiology and former dean of the UCLA school of public health, has focused on defining the natural history of the AIDS virus.
Both professors will be honored at the association’s annual meeting next month in Atlanta.
