Please join in congratulating Gerry Joyce and Jim Lake on their induction into the 232nd class of members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Founded in 1780, the American Academy is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious learned societies, and an independent research center that draws from its members’ expertise to conduct studies in science and technology policy, global security, the humanities and culture, social policy, and education.
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.
