Roy Curtiss, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, has been elected as a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. He’s being recognized for “the broad impact his scientific work has had on society and for his support and enhancement of innovation.”

Dr. Curtiss’ career spans more than 50 years, contributing to the fields of genetics, microbiology, biomedical sciences and vaccinology. His pioneering work in the areas of microbial pathogenesis, genetic manipulation and vaccine development has been used to address problems of world concern in animal, human and environmental health, according to the university.

Vaccines that Curtiss has designed, constructed and evaluated have been used to protect agriculturally important animals as well as humans from a variety of infectious diseases. Curtiss recently developed several new ways of constructing vaccines for different strains of salmonella, the university further noted.

“Science excites me every day,” Curtiss said. “It provides new highs through learning something new, discovering new ways to achieve solutions to significant problems and through the process of successfully organizing joint efforts to make contributions.”
