Washington: Indian-American Subra Suresh, currently president of Carnegie Mellon University, has been elected as a member of the prestigious Institute of Medicine (IOM), becoming the only current university president to be elected to all three national academies.





Suresh, who earlier served as director of National Science Foundation (NSF), a USD 7-billion independent government science agency charged with advancing all fields of fundamental science, engineering research and education, is one of the only 16 living Americans to be elected to all three national academies (IOM, the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering).

Election to a National Academy is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to engineers, scientists and medical and health professionals.

Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to their fields.
