Focusing on astrophysics, nanoscience, neuroscience and theoretical physics, the Foundation's many programs in support of science include establishing 15 research institutes at some of the world's most prestigious universities. The Foundation is also the founding partner of the international Kavli Prizes, which honor scientists in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience.

"I am delighted and excited to be joining Fred Kavli and team at The Kavli Foundation to help advance the Foundation's vision and mission," said Dr. Conn. "In a short period of time, the Foundation has established remarkable institutes around the world, each focused on the creation of basic knowledge in four fundamental scientific fields. The Foundation has more recently established with Norway the highly prestigious Kavli Prizes, whose inaugural year 2008 successfully celebrated the achievements of seven distinguished scientists. I look forward to the challenge of sustaining the mission and vision of Fred Kavli and the Foundation, and to working with the extraordinary partners of the Foundation, from universities to scientific academies worldwide who share this commitment to science."
