Arizona State University transfer student Elizabeth Figueroa always knew that she wanted to go to college — her parents inspired her, as they both had bachelor's degrees.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the Science family of journals, has elected Joan Silk from Arizona State University to the newest class of AAAS Fellows, among the most distinguished honors within the scientific community.
As part of Arizona State University's pandemic response teams, infectious disease epidemiologist Megan Jehn has been part of measuring the effectiveness of countermeasures such as face coverings.
Searching for ways to counter COVID-19 in school settings led her to another way to attack the problem: filtering indoor air in classrooms.
People aren’t just feeling pain at the pump these days — they’re feeling it all over. From gas to groceries, from cars to cough drops, consumers are paying more for almost everything and getting less in return.

Outside of science, and until the pandemic, most ordinary people were not aware of scientific modeling.
After two years of hearing predictions about which way virus variations were headed, and the way researchers come up with these numbers, that’s changed. Computational models look at the course of the pandemic regionally and globally. They’re the basis of policy decisions on public health.
Computer models are also used in climate science and almost every other type of science.
ASU professor to study the structural biology of photosynthetic supercomplexes with NSF CAREER Award
Plants, algae and cyanobacteria use photosynthesis to produce oxygen and reduce carbon, like carbohydrates, which builds and fuels our entire biosphere.
“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
