Jackson recognized for commitment to scientific research

Gallatin and NYU-Poly professor Myles Jackson was recognized last month for his commitment to research in biology and technology. 

Jackson, who joined NYU in 2007, has been honored as a new member of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, an international association of scientists that includes Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and other established figures. 

"[Jackson] is exceptionally creative and stands out due to a remarkable combination of capacity for technical analysis with subtle attention to context. He is among the finest analysts of German science anywhere," said Manuela Bank, deputy head of Press and Public Relations for the Leopoldina Academy.
