08 Dec Three UW‒Madison faculty honored as National Academy of Inventors Fellows
Three University of Wisconsin–Madison professors — Charles Mistretta, Denise Ney and Ann Palmenberg — have been named fellows of the National Academy of Inventors.
NAI fellowship honors academic inventors who have “demonstrated a 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,” according to the academy.
UW–Madison’s newest trio of fellows are responsible for scores of patents, and bring the university’s total academy membership to 10.
The 2020 fellows class includes 175 inventors from 115 universities and governmental and non-profit researcher institutes around the world. They will be inducted during a ceremony at the academy’s annual meeting in Tampa in June.
