Dr. David Price has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) “for distinguished contributions to the field of eukaryotic transcription, particularly for founding discoveries in RNA polymerase II elongation control and regulation of HIV gene expression.”

Dr. Price is one of two faculty in the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine who have been awarded the distinction of 2013 Fellow of the AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science. The UI recipients are among 338 individuals elected this year by peers. AAAS members are elevated to the rank of “Fellow” because their efforts to advance science or its applications are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished. The new Fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a rosette pin on Saturday, February 15, 2014, during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago.
