Carnegie Mellon University's president and two professors have been elected as fellows of the National Academy of Inventors.

The Academy, which recognizes inventors who have a tangible impact on society, has named CMU President Subra Suresh, computer science and robotics professor Raj Reddy and natural sciences and chemistry professor Krzysztof Matyjaszewski among its newest fellows. Their peers nominated them for outstanding contributions in areas such as patents and licensing, discovery and technology.

Matyjaszewski, best known for developing a novel method of polymer synthesis, is a co-inventor on 132 international and 46 U.S. patented technologies, and has 26 U.S. patent applications pending approval.

Reddy, who founded CMU's Robotics Institute, developed the first system capable of recognizing continuous speech. His research team subsequently developed many of the ideas underlying modern commercial speech recognition technology.

Suresh, former director of the National Science Foundation, holds 21 patents related to his work in materials research.
