CICATS is proud to announce that Dr. Steven L. Suib of the University of Connecticut has been elected as a National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Fellow. The NAI Fellows Selection Committee chose Dr. Suib because he has “demonstrated a highly 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.” Election to NAI Fellow status is the highest professional distinction accorded solely to academic inventors.
“As CEO of the Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science and President of the UConn Chapter of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI), I am thrilled that Dr. Suib has been elected as an NAI fellow,” said Dr. Cato T. Laurencin. “His commitment to innovation and inventorship is inspiring and I congratulate him on this great achievement.”
Dr. Suib has been invited to attend the Fellows Induction Ceremony on April 5, 2018 at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. Andrew H. Hirshfeld, U.S. Commissioner for Patents, will provide the keynote address for the ceremony.
