Professor Yury Gogotsi

Since 2012, the National Academy of Inventors, a nonprofit organization founded and dedicated to encouraging academic inventors with U.S. patents, has inducted a yearly class of fellows into the organization. “The NAI Fellows Program was established to highlight academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding invention 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.” (From the NAI Fellows Program website.)

With more than 190 patent applications filed and more than 70 issued patents, over 30 of which have been licensed to industry, Prof. Gogotsi is certainly worthy of this esteemed accolade. He thanks his nominators, co-inventors, and companies that acquired licenses for using his patented carbon and MXene materials and technologies for their support in reaching this honor. (more…)
