May Berenbaum Named Editor-in-Chief of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

May Berenbaum has been named editor-in-chief of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The journal publishes original research, reports, commentaries, perspectives, colloquium papers, and actions of the academy and features items from the biological, physical, and social sciences disciplines.

Dr. Berenbaum is the Swanlund Chair of Entomology and professor at the University of Illinois. She was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1994 and has served on the PNAS editorial board since 1998.

“What I like most about PNAS, and what sets it apart from its pre-eminent peers, is its breadth,” Professor Berenbaum said. “Its structure is built on the breadth of the NAS itself, encompassing the natural, physical and social sciences, and spanning basic and applied dimensions. It’s an amazing opportunity to help PNAS continue to influence the path and progress of science as it kicks off its second century.”

Dr. Berenbaum is a summa cum laude graduate of Yale University where she majored in biology. She holds Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology from Cornell University.
