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

The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Fellows Selection Committee elected Pishko to the rank of NAI Fellow. 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 has made such a positive difference for people on a global scale,” Pishko says.

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