Two members of the University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty are among 72 scientists from around the world who have been elected fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology.

Elected as fellows are Ann Palmenberg, a virologist and UW–Madison professor of biochemistry, and M. Thomas Record, a UW–Madison professor of chemistry and biochemistry.

Also elected was William Reznikoff, a professor emeritus of biochemistry who is now at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

American Academy of Microbiology fellows are elected annually through a highly selective peer-review process. Election is based on scientific achievement and a record of original contribution that has advanced the field.
