The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has named six Emory faculty members as 2022 Fellows, which is one of the largest classes of AAAS Fellows selected from Emory in more than a century. These scientific leaders have been awarded the distinction of Fellow because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.
Ben Lopman, PhD, is professor of epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health, with a secondary appointment in environmental health. He has made significant contributions “to the field of infectious diseases, particularly for the study of the epidemiology of enteric diseases, evaluation of new vaccines, and modeling the impact of vaccination strategies.” Since the onset of the pandemic, Lopman’s team has worked extensively on the epidemiology of COVID-19, developing population-based methods to monitor the pandemic, model transmission and vaccination and designing studies for vaccine evaluation.
