We encourage college students to celebrate invention as part of their science and technology research, and we're also looking forward to seeing the impact of their work as they progress. I know that all the judges join me in commending these students."

The prominent group of judges for this year's competition includes five National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees: C. Donald Bateman (Ground Proximity Warning System), Robert Bower (self-aligned gate MOSFET), Edith Flanigen (molecular sieves), Rangaswamy Srinivasan (excimer laser surgery), and James West (electret microphone). In addition, the judging panel includes Jeffrey Pan, Associate Director, Scientific Informatics and Automation, Global Pharmaceutical Discovery from Abbott, and Jasemine Chambers, Group Director of Industrial Design from the USPTO.

"Abbott is proud to again be part of this competition that showcases innovation and fosters broader understanding of science," explained Jeffrey Pan, Associate Director, Scientific Informatics and Automation, Global Pharmaceutical Discovery, Abbott. "Through our support of the competition, Abbott hopes to help inspire today's science students who may go on to find tomorrow's cures and treatments for the world's most serious diseases and health care challenges."

"The United States Patent and Trademark Office is pleased to be part of this outstanding young inventor recognition program," USPTO Director David Kappos commented. "Maintaining America's technological edge is vitally important in today's world economy. The highly talented and creative collegiate inventors who participated this year renew my confidence that this nation's innovative tradition will continue to endure. I congratulate all of the 2009 winners and wish them well in their future endeavors."
