Alex Jen Elected 2012 Materials Research Society Fellow

On February 6, it was announced that Prof. Alex Jen has been elected a 2012 Fellow of the Materials Research Society (MRS). The title of MRS Fellow honors those MRS members who are notable for their distinguished research accomplishments and their outstanding contributions to the advancement of materials research, world-wide. The maximum number of new Fellow appointments each year is limited to 0.2% of the current MRS membership. The distinction is thus highly selective. This year, MRS has received a large number of excellent nominations.  This made the work of the selection committee extraordinarily demanding, but reflects very positively on the Fellow program, as well as on MRS.

In recognition of this honor, all new MRS Fellows will be invited to participate in some special events at the 2012 MRS Spring Meeting -- the President’s Reception on Monday, April 9, and a special reception on Tuesday, April 10, during which the 2012 MRS Fellows will be recognized and honored.
