National Academy of Sciences National Academy of Engineering institute of Medicine National Research Council ax ..f ~ A.... ~ is. :~ s ~~.~:...~. a..) The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, clecticated to the furtherance of science and tech- nology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Con- gress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific ant! technical matters. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was establisher! in 1964, under the charter of the National AcacI- emy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administra- tion and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the fecleral government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education ant! research, and recognizes the supe- rior achievements of engineers. Dr. William A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineer- ~ng. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sci- ences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Kenneth I. Shine is president of the Insti- tute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associ- ate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowI- ecige and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, ant! the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies ant! the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts and Dr. William A. Wulf are chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the National Research Council.
