Faculty members named fellowships for scientific, technological contributions
Two faculty members have been chosen as fellowships at the National Academy of Inventors.
Allan Jacobson of the Texas Center for Superconductivity at UH and who serves as Robert A. Welch Chair of Science, has conducted research that includes discovering and developing a class of catalysts, as well as discovering new microporous crystalline metal silicates, according to a press release.
The other fellowship will be going to Richard Willson, a Huffington-Woestemeyer professor of chemical and biomolecular engineer. According to a UH press release, Willson had studied nanotechnology and biomolecular technologies in medical diagnostics in which to recognize diseases at earlier stages.
The two faculty members will head over to the California Institute of Technology in March to be inducted.
