Natalie Ebner, Ph.D. has accepted the invitation to participate as a Session Chair for the National Academy of Sciences; twenty seventh annual Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium on November 5-7, 2015.
This symposium series is the Academy’s premiere activity for distinguished young scientists. Unlike meetings that cover a single, narrow slice of science, these symposia are designed to provide an overview of advances and opportunities in a wide-ranging set of disciplines and to provide an opportunity for the future leaders of science to build a network with their colleagues. Attendees are selected by a committee of Academy members from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major fellowships and awards. Since its inception in 1989, more than one hundred seventy five of its alumni have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, and ten have received Nobel Prizes. Many participants cite the Kavli Frontiers of Science syposium as one of the most significant experiences of their scientific careers.
