We are so proud of our Pharmaceutics alumna, Deanna Kroetz, PhD, ’90, who was among the 396 new fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, announced this week. Election as a fellow of AAAS is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. Fellows are recognized for meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications.
Deanna is a Professor at the University of California San Francisco faculty in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences. As noted on her UCSF bio, her research seeks to understand the contribution of genetic variation to drug toxicity, to identify genetic biomarkers that can be used to guide effective use of drugs in the treatment of cancer and HIV, and to use genetics to unravel the molecular basis of drug-induced toxicity.
In addition to Deanna, eight University of Washington researchers were announced among the new fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
