ASU Chapter | National Academy of Inventors

The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) was founded to recognize and encourage academic inventors who have a patent issued from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The goals are to enhance the visibility of university technology and academic innovation, encourage the disclosure of intellectual property, educate and mentor innovative students, and translate the inventions of its members to benefit society.

The Arizona State University chapter of the NAI, launched in March 2017 under the leadership of Sethuraman “Panch” Panchanathan, recognizes inventors and promotes innovation across all disciplines of the institution.
