Marghetis Named Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences

August 31, 2022

CIS Professor Tyler Marghetis is one of 74  named a Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) at the 2022 Kavli Frontiers of Science U.S. Symposium, which is the Academy’s premiere activity for distinguished young scientists. A committee of NAS members selected the participants from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science. 

The Frontiers of Science symposium series provides a forum for the future leaders in U.S. science to share ideas across disciplines and to build contacts and networks as they advance in their careers. More than 6,000 young scientists have participated since the program’s founding in 1989; to date, 298 participants have been elected to the NAS and 17 have been awarded the Nobel Prize.

The Kavli Foundation, based in Los Angeles, California, is dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of humanity, promoting public understanding of scientific research, and supporting scientists and their work. The Kavli fellowship program is aimed at helping outstanding scientists learn about research at frontiers of fields other than their own, and helping participants develop a network of connections.
