Three MBIB Scientists Named to the National Academy of Sciences
May 23, 2016
Three scientists affiliated with the Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division were among the four Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab)-affiliated researchers elected as members to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) this week. The election to the NAS recognizes their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. Berkeley Lab senior scientist Robert Glaeser (left) is a leading authority on electron crystallography, and he is also a UC Berkeley professor emeritus of molecular and cell biology. Glaeser is joined by two biologist faculty scientists: Susan Marqusee and Krishna Niyogi. Marqusee (right) serves as director of QB3–Berkeley (California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences) and is the Eveland Warren Endowed Chair Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology, in the department of molecular and cell biology at UC Berkeley. Niyogi (left) is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator and professor in the department of plant and microbial biology at UC Berkeley. Together with Peidong Yang of the Chemical Sciences Division, the MBIB scientists make up this year’s class of 84 new members and 21 foreign associates. Read more at the Berkeley Lab News Center.
