WASHINGTON -- The National Academy of Sciences today announced the election of 72 new members and 18 foreign associates from 9 countries in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.

The election was held this morning during the business session of the 145th annual meeting of the Academy. Those elected today bring the total number of active members to 2,041.
