UCO professor named fellow by national association

David Bass, a University of Central Oklahoma biology professor, will be presented the distinction of fellow from the American Association for the Advancement of Science in February at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2010 AAAS annual meeting in San Diego.

Bass was elected as a fellow for teaching excellence, positively impacting students, original and definitive research on freshwater invertebrates of the Caribbean islands, and outstanding service to the profession and public.

"The courses I teach are subjects I find to be most intriguing, and my research interests are reflected in those courses," said Bass. "I believe my research efforts have enhanced the content of my courses and exposed students to some of the most recent ideas in those fields. I hope students who take my courses and work in my research laboratory have experiences which make a positive difference in their lives and change or enhance the way they think."

Bass is one of 531 AAAS members awarded the honor of AAAS Fellow for their scientific and socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.
