Professor Kia Nobre is elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of 120 new members and 26 new international members elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.

Kia Nobre is the Chair of the Oxford Neuroscience Strategy Committee, Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology and Director of the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity. 

The National Academy of Sciences was established in 1863 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Lincoln, as a private, nongovernmental institution to advise the US nation on issues related to science and technology. Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research. It was joined in 1964 by the National Academy of Engineering and in 1970 by the National Academy of Medicine. 

The three Academies work together as the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. The National Academies also encourage education and research, recognize outstanding contributions to knowledge, and increase public understanding in matters of science, engineering, and medicine.
