As a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow, Dr. Singer attended the 18th Chinese-American Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium in Nanjing, China. The Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium series (KFoS) is the Academy’s premiere activity for distinguished young scientists. Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia bring together outstanding young scientists to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in a broad range of disciplines. The format encourages both one-on-one conversations and informal group discussions in which participants continue to communicate about insights gained from formal presentations and the excitement of learning about cutting-edge research in other fields. By doing so, Frontiers helps to remove communication barriers between fields and encourages collaborations. U.S. symposium participants are selected from among recipients of prestigious fellowships, awards, and other honors, as well as from nominations by NAS members and other participants.
