First Lebanese Doctor Gets Elected Into The European Academy Of Sciences And Arts

Some good news!

The prestigious European Academy of Sciences and Arts has selected Professor Youssef Fares, head of the Neuroscience Research Center at the Lebanese University, to join its cadre, making him the first Lebanese doctor among its members. Fares was officially honored by the Academy during a ceremony held in Salzburg, Austria.

The selection of Fares by the Academy denotes a global recognition for his leadership in neurosurgery, and according to its criteria, “his outstanding contributions have led to advances in neuroscience, the development of health care institutions, and the building of bridges between Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean”.

The European Academy of Sciences and Arts is an association that promotes scientific and societal progress. Its members are leading scientists, artists, and practitioners of governance, who are dedicated to innovative research, interdisciplinary and transnational collaborations, and who are the most distinguished scientists, artists, and business experts, among them Nobel Prize winners.

We’re proud of another Lebanese achievement!
