The Lyceum Society of the New York Academy of Sciences

Established in 1993, The Lyceum Society is comprised of the Academy’s retired and semi-retired Members.

Their disciplines include Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Chemical and Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Information Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, and many others.

The Society hosts convivial monthly meetings at the Academy.
