Date:1/9/2014

TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 9, 2014) The current special issue of Technology and Innovation- Proceedings of the National Academy of Inventors is devoted to presentations from the Second Annual Conference of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) hosted by the University of South Florida, last February 21-23, 2013.

"This conference attracted 200 inventors and innovators from 60 universities, research institutes, and government agencies worldwide," said Nassar Arshadi, vice provost for research, Office of Research Administration, University of Missouri, St. Louis. "A highlight of the conference was the induction of NAI Charter Fellows, including 101 renowned scientists and innovation pioneers from 56 research institutions who collectively hold over 3,200 patents. The goal of the conference was to address research discovery, innovation, and entrepreneurship."

In his keynote address, newly inducted Charter Fellow Robert Langer of MIT, who holds over 800 patents, challenged the audience to "find a way that works" to get their inventions to market regardless of skeptics. A pioneer of new technologies, including transdermal delivery systems, Langer told attendees that he often met resistance from critics in the form of "it can't be done." He is one of only three Americans who have won both the U.S. National Medal of Science and the U.S. National Medal of Technology and Innovation.

Nine papers selected from this year's conference are included in this special issue of Technology and Innovation.
