The American Chemical Society (ACS) has named Dr. Fereidoon Shahidi to the 2010 class of ACS Fellows. This honour was bestowed upon 192 distinguished scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world’s largest scientific society. The 2010 Fellows will be recognized on Aug. 23 during the society’s national meeting in Boston. Dr. Shahidi, a professor in the Department of Biochemistry, was the only Canadian selected this year and one of only two individuals recognized outside of the United States. The Fellows program began in 2009 to recognize and honor ACS members for their outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the society. This year’s group, like the first 163 Fellows named in 2009, represents academe, industry and government. Additional information about the program is available at
