Lake and Joyce, both long-time members of the astrobiology community, are among the one hundred-eighty influential artists, scientists, scholars, authors, and institutional leaders who were inducted into the Academy at a ceremony on Saturday, October 6th. They both join the Academy’s Biological Science class – Lake is in the Evolutionary and Population Biology and Ecology section and Joyce is in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology section.
