Professor Emerita Elected to National Academy of Sciences
Professor Emerita M. Cristina Marchetti has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, in recognition of her original research into soft and living matter.

In March, Marchetti was awarded the Leo P. Kadanoff Prize from the American Physical Society (APS), where she is a Fellow and an editor of Physical Review X. The former Kenan and Distinguished Professor also is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
