In recognition of their contributions to basic, translational, and clinical research, six faculty members from MD Anderson Cancer Center have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as a Fellow, a tradition that began in 1874, is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. MD Anderson's faculty now includes 46 AAAS Fellows.
Kelly Hunt, M.D., chair of Breast Surgical Oncology, honored for practice-changing breast cancer research involving sentinel lymph node biopsy, breast conservation, novel surgical staging systems, contralateral mastectomy, skin-sparing mastectomy and quality outcome measures.
