The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has honored Mary Helen Immordino-Yang with the AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science for her "sustained commitment and novel approach to integrating public engagement with science into her extensive research and scholarly activities and for using public interactions to inform her research."

Immordino-Yang is "an exceptional scientist with an impressive record in scientific research and in public engagement for one so early in her career," said Tiffany Lohwater, AAAS Director of Meetings and Public Engagement. She has received awards including a 2012 National Science Foundation CAREER Award, an "Honor Coin" of the United States Army for translational neuroscience research, and the 2010 Cozzarelli Prize of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

As an assistant professor at the University of Southern California (USC) Rossier School of Education, an assistant professor of psychology at USC's Brain and Creativity Institute, and a member of the Neuroscience Graduate Program Faculty at USC, Immordino-Yang's research has focused on the neuroscience of social emotion and its implications for education.
