Bertozzi, Tavaré Elected into National Academy of Sciences
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) elected 84 new members and 21 foreign associates on May 1, 2018. As noted on the NAS website, members are chosen for their distinguished and continuing achievements in their original research. This membership is one of the highest honors that a scientist can receive. Among those elected, IPAM would like to recognize Dr. Andrea Bertozzi, Professor of Mathematics and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Betsy Wood Knapp Chair for Innovation and Creativity, and Director of Applied Mathematics at UCLA. Bertozzi has contributed to IPAM as an organizer, speaker, and participant in many programs, most recently as a core participant in IPAM’s long program, Culture Analytics.
IPAM would also like to congratulate Dr. Simon Tavaré, Director of Cancer Research, UK Cambridge Institute, on this outstanding achievement. Tavaré was a member of IPAM’s Science Advisory Board from 2002-2008, and helped organize IPAM’s first long program on Functional Genomics, in 2000.
