Shift of Leadership in Board of Directors at the American Association of Anatomists

By: American Association of Anatomists
As President of AAA, Dr. Topp will lead the Association in a continued path of expansion while also working to increase member retention and build collaborative initiatives with other scientific member organizations. “Reflecting on my role as the new President, I want to see our individual members thrive in their scholarly work --- garnering extramural funding, innovating in anatomical science, and building bridges to connect fields of inquiry. I want to see us positively influence science policy, increase literacy in biology, and improve health. These goals will be addressed in part by maintaining the high quality of our journals, and in part by fostering respectful discussion and debate about foundational knowledge and recent discoveries,”
About AAA: The American Association of Anatomists (AAA) was founded by Joseph Leidy in Washington, D.C. in 1888 for the “advancement of anatomical science.” Today, via research, education and professional development activities, AAA serves as the professional home for an international community of biomedical researchers and educators focusing on the structural foundation of health and disease.
