US National Academy of Sciences elects William Bond

2 May 2014 - 09:15

US-based National Academy of Sciences has just elected Prof. William Bond as a foreign associate in recognition of his distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.  Foreign associates are nonvoting member of the Academy, with citizenship outside the United States.

Election to the Academy is widely regarded as one of the highest honours that a scientist can receive, and we are indeed proud to have one of our staff members recognised by the NAS.  It is fabulous news for our department, UCT and South Africa!
