TAMPA, Fla. (Dec. 18, 2012)—The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) has named 98 innovators to NAI Charter Fellow status, representing 54 prestigious research universities and non-profit research institutes.
Together, the new Fellows hold more than 3,200 U.S. patents.
We are eager to watch the NOVA documentary tonight on PBS called "Cracking Your Genetic Code." Lee Hood is one of the featured experts. The producer, Sarah Holt, began with a series of phone interviews late last summer before interviewing Lee on camera in her Boston studio.
This video from 2009 is a fun one of Dr. Leroy Hood's appearance on the Science Channel's "PopSci's Future of" show. It explains in simple terms why our researchers are looking for protein biomarkers, which offer the earliest signs of disease.
