Stephen Long, Gutgsell Endowed Professor of Crop Sciences and Plant Biology (Genomic Ecology of Global Change, Biosystems Design) has been invited to serve as a Sectional Committee Chair for the Royal Society. The position carries great honor and responsibility; the Sectional Committees must select, from the hundreds of nominations received each year, a short list of candidates for election as Royal Society Fellows. In his role as Chairperson, Long will attend Royal Society Council meetings to advocate for the candidates identified by his Sectional Committee. The Royal Society is one of the oldest scientific academies in the world, and the selection of new members has an important impact on the scientific community as a whole.
