Dr. Arlene Russell is one of 99 distinguished members of the American Chemical Society (ACS) who have been named as 2014 ACS Fellows.

C&EN: The American Chemical Society has named 99 members as ACS Fellows. The new fellows will be feted at the society’s national meeting in San Francisco this August at a ceremony hosted by ACS Immediate Past-President Marinda Li Wu.

“As part of the ACS presidential succession, I have the joy and honor of participating in the ACS Fellows ceremony at the fall national ACS meeting,” said Wu in announcing the 2014 class of fellows. “It is quite exciting to recognize members for their outstanding contributions and service to both chemistry and to society. ACS Fellows over the years have come from academia, industry, government labs, and small business. Congratulations to all who have achieved this distinction and helped advance the chemistry enterprise and ACS!”

The fellows program began in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS.

The full list of the 2014 fellows can be viewed at C&EN.
