Griffin is one of 120 new members elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
Robert Guy Griffin, the Arthur Amos Noyes Professor of Chemistry, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. This year, the National Academy of Sciences elected 120 new members, including a record 59 women, and 30 international members.
“The historic number of women elected this year reflects the critical contributions that they are making in many fields of science, as well as a concerted effort by our Academy to recognize those contributions and the essential value of increasing diversity in our ranks,” said National Academy of Sciences President Marcia McNutt. “I am pleased to welcome all of our new members, and I look forward to engaging with them in the work of the National Academies.”
A large fraction of the Griffin Group’s research effort is devoted to the development of new magnetic resonance techniques to study molecular structure and dynamics
