US: Indian-American named member of Chinese Academy of Sciences
Membership in the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the highest academic honour offered for science and technology in China.

Washington: An eminent Indian-American scientist and president of the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University in the US has been named a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Subra Suresh has been recognised for his scientific contributions in materials science and engineering, including his work connecting nano-mechanical cell structure to disease states, the university said in a statement.

Membership in the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the highest academic honour offered for science and technology in China. Only nine foreign members were inducted this year. Suresh was also honoured for his leadership in building a worldwide scientific and engineering research dialogue through the Global Research Council, which he helped to found as director of the US National Science Foundation.

The council will have its annual meeting in Beijing in May 2014. He will be recognised during the Chinese Academy's General Assembly scheduled for June in Beijing, it said. Suresh is CMU's second faculty member to be recognized with the title. The late Herbert Simon was elected to it in

1994.
