Michael Pishko, the dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, earned a very prestigious honor from a national academy.

The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Fellows Selection Committee elected Pishko to the rank of NAI Fellow, announced Tuesday by the organization. He was honored specifically for his work and innovations in the areas of diabetes management, drug delivery and pollution remediation.

The NAI Fellows Selection Committee informed Pishko in an award letter he was chosen for induction “as you have 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. Congratulations on this great achievement and recognition as a truly prolific academic inventor.”

“I’m deeply honored to be recognized by my colleagues, and truly humbled to be included among a group of individuals who have made such a positive difference for people on a global scale,” Pishko says.

Pishko was invited to attend the Fellows Induction Ceremony on April 6, 2017, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston. U.S. Commissioner for Patents Andrew Hirshfeld will provide the keynote address for the ceremony.
