Four Rutgers professors and two former faculty members were honored recently by the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame. Scott Kachlany, associate professor in the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, received the organization’s "Innovators Award" at its awards event earlier this month. Kachlany was honored for his work leading to new potential treatments for leukemia. The "Inventor of the Year" award went to five individuals including Richard Mammone, professor in the Rutgers Business School and School of Engineering; Nicholi Vorsa, director of Rutgers’ Marucci Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research; and Ximing Guo, shellfish geneticist and professor at Rutgers’ Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory.
