Drs. Nancy E. Davidson and Denise Galloway, two of the nation’s leading lights in women’s health research and scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, have been elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, joining a class of luminaries this year that includes former First Lady Michelle Obama.

One of the nation’s oldest learned societies, the Academy was founded in 1780 by John Adams and John Hancock, among others, to honor accomplished individuals and “to engage them in advancing the public good.” Now in its 239th year, its honorees include Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, Robert Frost and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
