Ruth Ley elected to the Leopoldina – German National Academy of Sciences!

Ruth was elected to the Leopoldina (German National Academy of Sciences) in June.

The Leopoldina originated in 1652 as a classical scholarly society and now has 1,600 members from almost all branches of science. In 2008, the Leopoldina was appointed as the German National Academy of Sciences and, in this capacity, was invested with two major objectives: representing the German scientific community internationally, and providing policymakers and the public with science-based advice.
