Top inventor named

The University’s Patent Foundation has named Joel Linden its Edlich-Henderson Inventor of the Year for his work in developing a family of anti-inflammatory compounds that may avert paralysis in some patients with spinal cord injuries. (See “Adenosine compound promising in treatment of spinal cord injury,” Inside UVA, March 29.)

“Joel Linden is one of U.Va.’s most prolific inventors and a pioneering faculty entrepreneur,” said Robert S MacWright, Patent Foundation director. “We are pleased to recognize his contributions.”

The award honors an invention with strong commercial potential and notable value to society. The invention may be used to treat disease, protect the environment, in research or education, or to help the disadvantaged, the disabled and the elderly.
