University of Vermont Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics Michael Radermacher, Ph.D., has been named one of six new Fellows of the Microscopy Society of America (MSA). He will be officially welcomed to the 2013 Class of MSA Fellows at an awards ceremony at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2013 Meeting, which will be held August 4 to 8, 2013, in Indianapolis, Ind.

The designation of "MSA Fellow" is intended to recognize senior distinguished members of the Society who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the science and practice of microscopy imaging, analysis and diffraction techniques. Such notable contributions could include, for example, technique development or applications, extensive service to the microscopy profession (e.g., education, outreach) or distinguished service to the Society.

The “MSA Fellow” designation recognizes senior distinguished members of the MSA who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the science and practice of microscopy imaging, analysis and diffraction techniques. The election process is highly selective and requires a minimum of ten years MSA membership.

Radermacher is being honored “for advancing the field of electron cryomicroscopy through image processing methods development, structural studies of biological systems, and for service to the EM community through workshops and scientific meetings."
