BIGHEART faculty elected as Fellow of US National Academy of Inventors
- December 12, 2018
Prof. Dean Ho – Director of Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE) and BIGHEART faculty – has been elected as Fellow of the prestigious US National Academy of Inventors (NAI), the highest professional distinction for academic inventors. He is the only Singapore-based academic inventor to be elected as an NAI Fellow this year and this is also the first time an NUS academic has achieved this distinction.
Prof. Ho was nominated for his role in developing CURATE.AI, a powerful artificial intelligence (AI) platform that drives personalised and precision medicine, and successfully translating it to multiple human studies. It is also a tribute to Prof Ho’s pioneering work in the development of platforms using nanodiamonds for drug delivery and imaging.
The Fellowship will be conferred on 11 April 2019 as part of the Eighth NAI Annual Meeting which will be held at the Space Center Houston in Houston, Texas.
Congratulations to Prof. Ho for his excellent achievement!
