Posted: December 04, 2003

Dr. Paul D. Ellis, from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington, has been elected a Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his contributions to the field of multinuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and its application in bioinorganic chemistry, short-range structure and bonding, and chemical analysis. Dr. Ellis joined the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL in 1993 to lead the development of world-class magnetic resonance capabilities in EMSL. The AAAS will recognize Dr. Ellis on February 14, 2004, at the Fellows Forum during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle.
