The extremely exclusive American society The National Academy of Science on 29 April 2022 will induct two new members; Professor Bo Barker Jørgensen, Department of Biology and Professor Jørgen Christensen-Dalsgaard, Department of Physics and Astronomy. This will take place at an official ceremony in Washington, DC and after the formalities, participants are invited to a black-tie-dinner, flashing their tuxedos. At present 8 Danes are members of the Academy, and in total only 21 have been inducted over the 159 years of existence of the Academy, underscoring that being appointed as member is a large and rare honour.

The Presentation Ceremony will be webcast live starting at 4:00 p.m. (20:00 DST). Share the link and #NAS159 so that friends and family can watch live as the new members are introduced to your colleagues in the Academy and sign the NAS book.
