We are thrilled to congratulate Dr. Arthur Grossman, a valued member of our Scientific Advisory Board at the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI), on his recent election to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors that can be accorded a scientist in the United States.

Established by an Act of Congress signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, the NAS is charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology. Scientists are elected by their peers to membership in the NAS for outstanding contributions to research. The NAS is committed to furthering science in America, and its members are active contributors to the international scientific community.

Dr. Grossman’s election to the NAS is a testament to his significant contributions to the field of plant biology. His pioneering research has advanced our understanding of the environmental stresses that affect photosynthetic organisms and how these organisms adapt to changing environmental conditions. His work not only enriches our fundamental knowledge of plant biology but also has crucial implications for agriculture and food security, aligning seamlessly with BTI’s mission.

We invite our community of supporters, partners, and collaborators to join us in congratulating Dr. Grossman on this prestigious recognition.
