Ozcan elected to the National Academy of Inventors
Prof. Aydogan Ozcan has been elected a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

Aydogan Ozcan, Chancellor’s Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Bioengineering at UCLA, has been elected a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. 


The organization announced this year’s class of 148 fellows on December 11. The prestigious honor is given to academic inventors who have, “demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and welfare of society.”


Ozcan has made pioneering contributions to and high-impact inventions on mobile health, telemedicine, microscopy, sensing and diagnostics technologies. These technologies altogether have the potential to dramatically increase the reach of cost-effective diagnostics and medical technologies to resource limited settings and developing countries. In general, Ozcan’s innovations and scholarship are democratizing biomedical measurement technologies. He has founded two companies to commercialize these inventions, leading to products currently in use. 


Ozcan is the associate director of the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA and holds a faculty appointment in the Department of Surgery at the Geffen School of Medicine. He is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor.


Ozcan is also a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the International Photonics Society (SPIE), the Optical Society of America (OSA), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), and the Guggenheim Foundation. He has received major awards including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, International Commission for Optics Prize, Biophotonics Technology Innovator Award, Rahmi M. Koç Medal of Science, International Photonics Society Early Career Achievement Award, Army Young Investigator Award, NSF CAREER Award, NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, Navy Young Investigator Award, IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award and Distinguished Lecturer Award, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Award, National Academy of Engineering The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Award and MIT’s TR35 Award for his seminal contributions to computational imaging, sensing and diagnostics technologies.


New fellows will be formally inducted into the academy in April, at the organization’s annual conference in Houston.
