72 new members chosen by Academy

WASHINGTON -- The National Academy of Sciences today announced the election of 72 new members and 18 foreign associates from 16 countries in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.

The election was held this morning during the business session of the 143rd annual meeting of the Academy. "Election to the Academy is considered one of the highest honors in American science and engineering," said Ralph Cicerone, who became president of the Academy in 2005. Barbara Schaal, an NAS member since 1999 who was elected last year as the Academy's first woman vice president, noted, "This year's new class represents outstanding accomplishment in a wide variety of disciplines."

Those elected today bring the total number of active members to 2,013. Foreign associates are nonvoting members of the Academy, with citizenship outside the United States. Today's election brings the total number of foreign associates to 371.
