They will be inducted Oct. 7 at a ceremony in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
“It is an honor to welcome this new class of exceptional women and men as part of our distinguished membership,” said Don Randel, former Cornell provost and chair of the academy’s board of directors. “Their talents and expertise will enrich the life of the academy and strengthen our capacity to spread knowledge and understanding in service to the nation.” Full story
