Two NYU faculty named to the National Academy of Sciences

The National Academy of Sciences has elected two members of New York University's faculty to its ranks: Leslie Greengard, a professor of mathematics and computer science in NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and Richard Novick, a microbiologist at the NYU School of Medicine's Skirball Institute for Biomolecular Medicine. There are now 27 NYU faculty who are members of NAS.

Greengard, elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) this winter, is a pioneer in the development of algorithms and software for fast multiple methods. The recipient of NYU's 2004 Margaret and Herman Sokol Faculty Award in the Sciences, Greengard also heads NYU's new Computation in Science and Society initiative. The initiative is concerned not only with the physical and biological sciences, but also the extension of the role of computation and statistical analysis into such less traditional fields as education, the social sciences, and the arts. Greengard earned both his M.D. and Ph.D. from Yale University in 1987 and has taught at NYU throughout his entire academic career. From 2001-2004 he was the chief executive officer and chief technology officer for MadMax Optics, Inc., in Hamden, CT. The awards he has received for his work include The Leroy P. Steel Prize from the American Mathematical Society, a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award, and a Packard Foundation Fellowship.

Novick, professor of microbiology and medicine, is a member of Skirball's Molecular Pathogenesis Program. He has devoted his career to studying Staphylococcus aureus, a notorious bacterium that causes a wide variety of illnesses, from relatively minor skin abscesses to life-threatening toxic shock syndrome, and is the leading cause of hospital-acquired infections. Antibiotics kill the pathogen, but in recent years it has increasingly become resistant to the most commonly used antibiotics. Novick's laboratory spent many years working out the molecular ge
