The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a private, non-profit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Bruce Alberts is the president of the National Academy of Sciences.

Members and foreign associates of the Academy are elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research; election to the Academy is considered one of the highest honors that can be accorded a scientist or engineer. The Academy membership is comprised of approximately 2,000 members and 300 foreign associates, of whom more than 180 have won Nobel Prizes.

The Academy is governed by a Council comprised of twelve members (councilors) and five officers, elected from among the Academy membership. The Council is responsible to the membership for the activities undertaken by the organization and for the corporate management of the National Academy of Sciences, a corporation created by Act of Congress that also includes the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) the Institute of Medicine (IOM) ,and the National Research Council (NRC) Collectively, these organizations are called the National Academies. The NAS has delegated the governance of the National Research Council to the NRC Governing Board, which includes members of the Councils of the NAS, NAE, and IOM.
