James McClintock, Ph.D., a biology professor in the UAB’s College of Arts and Sciences, has been named an Explorers Club fellow.  Fellowship in the organization signifies McClintock’s significant scientific contributions to the field of geographical exploration. The Explorers Club was founded in 1904 to unite explorers through fellowship and to promote field research, furthering the instinct to explore.

Since 1989 McClintock has led or co-directed fourteen scientific expeditions with the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) in which he and his research collaborators have become the world’s authorities on Antarctic marine chemical ecology. McClintock has published over 200 scientific publications, and co-edited and co-authored several books related to a multitude of aspects dealing with marine invertebrates.
