Becoming member of the National Academy of Science is one of the greatest honors for scientists. Now Prof. Erick M. Carreira, Professor at the Laboratory of Organic Chemistry at ETH Zurich, has also received this membership due to his outstanding research achievements in the field of asymmetric synthesis of biologically active, stereochemically complex natural products.

Albert Einstein was a member and so was famous chemist Albert Eschenmoser: Being elected for a membership in the US National Academy of Science is still among the greatest honors researchers can achieve. Erick M. Carreira, entered this selected circle of approximately 2.400 US members and 500 international members.
