National Academy of Inventors honors 3 University of Houston professors
Date:1/29/2013

Three University of Houston faculty members have been named Charter Fellows of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) for their outstanding contributions to scientific and technological innovation.

UH faculty members Benton Baugh, an adjunct professor in mechanical engineering, Paul Chu, a physics professor and chief scientist of the Texas Center for Superconductivity at UH (TcSUH), and Dan Luss, a professor in chemical and biomedical engineering, are among 101 innovators awarded NAI Fellow status.

NAI Fellow status is a high professional distinction accorded to academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and the welfare of society.

The new fellows represent 56 universities and non-profit research institutes, and together they hold more than 3,200 U.S. patents. They include eight Nobel laureates, 14 presidents of research universities and non-profit research institutes, 53 members of the National Academies (National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine), two fellows of the Royal Society, 11 inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, five recipients of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, four recipients of the National Medal of Science, and 31 AAAS Fellows, among other major awards and distinctions.

The NAI Charter Fellows will be inducted by Margaret A. Focarino, the U.S. Commissioner for Patents, at the Second Annual Conference of the National Academy of Inventors, on Feb. 22, in Tampa, Fla.

Academic inventors and innovators elected to the rank of NAI Charter Fellow were nominated by their peers for outstanding contributions to innovation in areas such as patents and licensing, innovative discovery and technology, significant impact on society, and support and enhancement of innovation.
