Suzanne Ostrand-Rosenberg, Biological Sciences, Elected to Johns Hopkins University Society of Scholars
Suzanne Ostrand-Rosenberg, professor of biological sciences, has been elected to The Johns Hopkins University Society of Scholars. Ostrand-Rosenberg, a former postdoctorial fellow at Hopkins, and 14 other scientists and clinicians were honored during the society's 35th induction ceremony on May 19 and again at the university's commencement ceremony the following day.

The Society of Scholars was created on the recommendation of former Hopkins president Milton S. Eisenhower and approved by the university board of trustees on May 1, 1967. The society--the first of its kind in the nation--inducts former postdoctoral fellows and junior or visiting faculty at Johns Hopkins who have gained marked distinction in their fields of physical, biological, medical, social, or engineering sciences or in the humanities. The Committee of the Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars elects the scholars from among nominations made by Johns Hopkins faculty members. The society now has 460 members.
