The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) has named Larry Gold, the founder and chairman of the board of SomaLogic, as one of its 2017 fellows.
Election to NAI Fellow status is the highest professional distinction given to academic inventors. NAI Fellows are inventors on U.S. patents and were nominated by their peers for their spirit of innovation and creation of new technologies that have significantly impacted society.
Dr. Gold has been a professor in the department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder since 1970 and is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. A bioscience industry pioneer, Dr. Gold founded two other biotech companies prior to SomaLogic.
The NAI elected 155 fellows to the class of 2017. The induction ceremony will be in April as part of the Seventh Annual NAI conference in Washington, D.C.
