The National Academy of Sciences announced today the election of 120 members and 26 international members in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
One of those elected was Honorary Liveryman and Freeman Dr Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist at Google Inc who, in March, delivered our Annual Lecture.
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a private, non-profit society of distinguished scholars. Established by an Act of Congress, signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, the NAS is charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology. Scientists are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research. The NAS is committed to furthering science in America, and its members are active contributors to the international scientific community.
We send Vint our congratulations.
