It is a great pleasure to announce to everyone that Peter Barry has been elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This is a major honor since it represents a recognition from the scientific community of significant advances made by an individual in their scientific career to date. This particular award recognizes the many contributions that Peter has made to research and development of a cytomegalovirus vaccine using the rhesus macaque model and is well deserved. I’m sure that everyone in the CCM would like to congratulate Peter for this honor and we look forward to his continuing contributions to the advancement of science here at the CCM!
