Institute of Medicine
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS), chartered by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1863, is both an honorific scientific society and an adviser to government. With a membership of about 1,500 scientists and engineers, the NAS publishes a scholarly journal, organizes symposia and meetings, bestows prizes and scientific awards, and maintains contact with scientific academies in other countries. With its associated organizations, the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, the NAS operates through the National Research Council (NRC) in conducting policy and technical studies.
