Christina Moberg elected as President of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences

Graphical AbstractProfessor Christina Moberg (Editorial Board Member, New Journal of Chemistry),  was recently elected as the new President of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Upon her election as President in July, Professor Moberg said:
As the new President, I see one important task being to emphasise the significance of basic science in social development. There is a risk that we concentrate too many resources on contemporary problems, forgetting that the primary task of scholarly research is to find solutions for as yet unidentified questions, thus fulfilling the needs of future generations

Graphical AbstractProfessor Moberg’s own research, at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH focuses on organic chemistry.

In 1998, Professor Moberg was awarded the Göran Gustafsson Prize in Chemistry, for her achievements in synthetic organic chemistry, particularly for the methods with which she succeeded in solving the problem of dangerous mirror forms of molecules. She has also received an honorary doctorate from the Faculty of Science at Lund University.
