Clemson University researchers were issued 14 patents in 2017, including technologies for monitoring and controlling electric power systems, Cartesian robotic printers, lockable knee implants and composite membranes for hydrogen separation, according to a university news release.

Inventors, entrepreneurs and university recently honored Clemson University’s top inventors and patent recipients during an annual patent award ceremony hosted by the Clemson University Research Foundation, which facilitates and manages technology transfer for Clemson faculty.

In addition to recognizing faculty members who received patents in 2017, CURF presented the first Inventor’s Club Awards, a new honor for inventors whose innovations have taken steps toward commercialization.

The event also showcased last year’s patents, which bring the research foundation’s portfolio of technologies available for licensing to more than 150, according to the news release. The awards program recognized researcher contributions to a variety of fields, including advanced materials, biomedical science and electrical and computer engineering.

“This networking event allows Clemson’s most innovative minds to convene in one place and be recognized for their contributions to the research community,” Chris Gesswein, executive director of CURF, said in the news release.

A complete list of Clemson patents received in 2017 is available online.
