Professor Ottoline Leyser has been elected to the Leopoldina, Germany’s National Academy of Sciences. The Leopoldina is one of the world’s oldest scientific societies, founded in 1652. Leopoldina selects outstanding scientists to become members (over a quarter of whom are not German). Amongst its 7500 members since 1652, there are 170 Nobel laureates and individuals such as Marie Curie, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Max Planck. The Leopoldina seeks to provide scientific advice on important social topics, communicate this to policy makers and the public, and promote these topics globally. New members are proposed by Leopoldina members and are elected by its Presidium in a multi–stage selection process.  Further information is available here.
