University Professor Jean Chen Shih was among 23 USC inventors inducted into the USC Chapter of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) at a ceremony on Monday, April 22 hosted by the USC Stevens Center for Innovation.
The 23 new inductees join more than 300 USC inventors who were inducted last year. Individuals were inducted based on their being named on issued U.S. patents. The new inductees received chapter membership certificates and NAI lapel pins.
The USC-NAI chapter is one of 46 local NAI chapters nationwide. With 354 members, the USC-NAI chapter is one of the largest. Those inducted at USC are part of a network of 2,500 chapter members who account for over 15,000 patents, according to the National Academy of Inventors.
In being inducted into the USC-NAI chapter, Shih joins USC School of Pharmacy colleagues Liana Asatryan, Roberta Diaz Brinton, Daryl Davies, Stan Louie, John Andrew MacKay, Vassilios Papadopoulos, Frances Richmond, Kathleen Rodgers, Wei-Chiang Shen and Yong (Tiger) Zhang.
