CU Prof named Fellow of International Science Group

Clemson University professor Ken Marcus has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. As an analytical chemistry professor at Clemson University, Marcus develops instrumentation for the determination of components in various materials. He is an expert in the use of microplasma sources in atomic spectroscopy. The technique allows scientists to analyze a diverse array of materials. His laboratory develops novel polymer fibers for the separation, analysis and purification of proteins. “Obviously, I am quite honored to be listed among some of the brightest people in this country,” said Marcus. “I am proud of this acknowledgement to my research group’s contributions to science as a whole. It is also a reflection of the individual successes of the graduate students that I have had the pleasure work with over the last 26 years. It is very satisfying.”  Marcus will be named in the new Fellows induction ceremony in Boston in February. The American Association for the Advancement of Science is a non-profit international organization dedicated to advancing science worldwide. Founded in 1848, it serves 10 million individuals around the world as well as 261 societies. Every year the association council elects members who have made efforts for the advancement of science to be named Fellows.
