The Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Leipzig is a scholarly society rich in tradition with full members from Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia and corresponding members worldwide. Founded in 1846 under the name of Royal Saxon Society for the Sciences, the Academy is rooted in the idea of Leibniz to bringing together leading scientists from a wide range of disciplines for regular discourse. In doing so, it focuses on overall scientific developments and provides impetus for new research questions.
"I am honored and very much looking forward to the interdisciplinary exchange," comments Köhl, "I am most interested in an exchange on the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence and digitalization, as these technologies are also shaping biomedical research more and more."
Admission to the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Leipzig is a high scientific honor. Nationally and internationally recognized scholars who have contributed to a significant expansion of the body of knowledge in their field through their research are admitted. Self-application is not possible.
