Dr. Hanjoong Jo Elected Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science

MSP faculty Hanjoong Jo has been elevated to the rank of Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), one of the highest distinctions in the scientific community.

Jo, who serves as distinguished faculty chair at Emory and Georgia Tech’s Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, joins this group of distinguished scientists for his contributions to atherosclerosis research, according to the citation from AAAS.

The AAAS especially noted Jo’s use of novel animal models and cultured cells to discover the role of blood flow on endothelial cell dysfunction in atherosclerosis, a buildup of artery-clogging fats and cholesterol that can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
