Kondraske and a graduate student developed a software feature for computers and phones that identifies text and suggests a word to be used. He also is founding director of the UT Arlington Human Performance Institute.

Magnusson's research has applications in drug discovery, diagnostics, medical devices, homeland security and solar cells.

The 98 innovators elected to NAI fellow status this year represent 54 universities and nonprofit research institutes. Together, they hold more than 3,200 U.S. patents.
