There is 1 comment on BU’s Christopher Chen Elected a National Academy of Inventors Fellow

  1. This post on Dr Chen was both marvelous and is an eye opener. Unless there’s one already, I suggest you develop a website which catalogs the inventors and describes their ideas. It would be a marvelous resource for the rest of us in the public to understand what is going on in medicine and to encourage others who have the capability to invent more new approaches to health. My PhD was in speech, but I have done such a website for public information, jlohrbrainhealth.com, describing and providing resources for 200 different and current diagnoses for brain health, which is the current term for mental illness. I hope to help patients and their families and caregivers understand brain health better. I am hoping to train new members of the brain health professions how to inspire young entrepreneurs to develop new treatments and cures for brain health. I hope you will do the same with the inventions of the members of your academy!
