Dan Ammon Inaugurated Into The National Academy of Engineering (NAE)
We are excited to honor and celebrate our Vice President of R&D Dan Ammon and his recent inauguration into the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Dan brings more than 30 years of experience in biomedical device research and development to Collagen Matrix, Inc.
Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
“I am deeply humbled and honored to be named a member of the National Academy of Engineering,” said Dan. “I am grateful to the hundreds of colleagues, mentors and friends who have contributed to this election. I would like to especially thank my family, who supported me greatly over this thirty-year journey.”
Dan holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University at Buffalo. The teams he has led have been part of launching more than 60 products in the medical device community (including more than 10 here at CMI under his leadership!) Dan is also a co-inventor on 80 patent and patent applications.
Dan will be formally inducted and recognized during the NAE’s annual meeting on October 1, 2023. Learn more about the NAE and its distinguished members here: NAE Website – Home
