Sanger is honored as one of the first fellows of the American Association of Anatomists
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Joseph W. Sanger, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at SUNY Upstate Medical University, has been named a fellow of the American Association of Anatomists (AAA).
Sanger is one of four individuals elected to the first class of fellows ever selected by the AAA in its 119-year history. He received the honor May 1 at the association’s annual awards banquet held this year in Washington, D.C.
The honor recognizes Sanger’s excellence in science and his overall contributions to the anatomical sciences.
Founded in 1888, the AAA represents biomedical researchers and educators who are the primary educators of first-year medical students.
Sanger joined the SUNY Upstate faculty in 2006, after a 35-year career at the University of Pennsylvania. Sanger’s research focus is the assembly and dynamics of the cytoskeleton of vertebrate muscle and non-muscle cells. His research is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Sanger’s previous honors include his elections as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a trustee of the Bermuda Biological Station for Research and an executive trustee of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass.
