Melanie Sanford, the Moses Gomberg Collegiate Professor of Chemistry in LSA, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences.  She is one of four scholars at Michigan elected to this honor in 2016.

The National Academy of Sciences was established in 1863 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Lincoln, as a private, nongovernmental institution to advise the nation on issues related to science and
technology. Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research.
