Date:12/10/2013

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kurt H. Becker, the associate provost for research and technology initiatives and a professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). 

Becker was chosen by the NAI for his spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society. His pioneering work with atmospheric-pressure cold plasmas paved the way for new, more effective methods of sterilizing medical instruments and other biomedical and environmental applications, and he holds numerous patents on his discoveries.

Since joining NYU-Poly in 2007, Becker has been instrumental in helping the Institute translate its mission of Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (i2e) into action. He is the academic lead for PowerBridgeNY, a New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)-sponsored proof of concept center, which will leverage clean-energy innovations emerging from institutional research labs to create more and stronger businesses in New York State. He is also the NYU-Poly academic lead in the Northeastern Regional Node of the National Science Foundation's Innovation Corps (I-Corps), a joint program with CUNY (lead) and Columbia University that prepares academic researchers to become entrepreneurs and speeds the commercialization of their research.

NYU-Poly is home to some of the
