TTUHSC’s Reddy elected fellow by American Association for the Advancement of Science

For the last 20 years, P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., a scientist at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, has researched healthy aging, dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.

In recognition of those efforts, Reddy has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers and based upon the nominee’s scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.

AAAS elected 489 of its members as Fellows in 2020. Reddy was elected in the Biological Sciences category for his pioneering contributions to the fields of Alzheimer’s disease and mitochondrial neurobiology, particularly in discovering the key role of mitochondria in neurodegenerative diseases and their treatment. Mitochondria, considered the power generators of cells, take in and breakdown nutrients to create high-energy molecules for the cell.
