Emery N. Brown, the Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and Computational Neuroscience at MIT and the Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Brown has made important contributions in his experimental research toward understanding the neuroscience of how anesthetic drugs act in the brain to create the states of general anesthesia.
Professor Brown earned bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. degrees, all from Harvard University. He is also a graduate of Harvard Medical School.
This year the National Academy of Sciences selected 84 new members from the United States. While the academy does not release data on the race or ethnicity of its members, after an analysis of the list of new members by JBHE, it appears that only one of the new members is an African American.
